NEW POSITIONS? Coach A. L. Williams (left) and Dr. Ray 
Baumgartner both seemed to enjoy their temporary KP duties 
during spring finals. The Midnight Breakfast was sponsored for 
the NSU students by the faculty and administration as a kickoff 
for finals week. The break from studying was an event enjoyed 
by all who participated. 

512 Grads earn degrees

SUGB sets summer films 

The SUGB Music and Films Com- 
mittee will present seven films this 
summer for students' enjoyment and 
entertainment, according to Colette 
Oldmixon, chairman of the committee. 

The summer program began with the 
movie Gable and Lombard, starring 
James Brolin and Jill Clayburgh. The 
film depicted the early relationship of 
two of Hollywood's most famous lovers. 

On June 10 and 11 the committee will 
show The Blackbird with George Segal 
taking the lead role as Sam Spade, Jr. 
The film is a sequel to the Maltese 
Falcon with Segal playing the son of the 
great detective Sam Spade. 

Barbara Streisand, dressed as a 
matronly Jewish widow, will dominate 
the screen June 16 and 17 with her 
performance as Dolly Levy in Hello 

On June 24 and 25 Liv Ullman, Ed- 
ward Albert and Gene Kelly will star in 

the touching comedy love story Forty 
Carats. Ms. Ullmann is a forty year old 
divorcee who is engageed to a younger 
man (Edward Albert) and this leads to 
many complications. 

Timothy Dalton and Anna Calder- 
Marshal perform the lead roles in 
Emily Bronte's immortal story of 
young love- Withering Heights. This 
movie will be shown June 30 and July 1. 

If science fiction interests you, the 
committee will show Embryo starring 

Rock Hudson on July 7 and 8. With a 
twist not expected by the audience, this 
film keeps the viewer in suspense until 
the last frame. 

The summer program will end with 
Hustle, starring Burt Reynolds and 
Catherine Denevue on July 15 and 16. 

All films will have a cartoon or 
comedy short shown with them. 

Features start at 7:30 p.m. in the Arts

Distribution of the 1977 POTPOURRI 
yearbooks in the Student Union was 
scheduled for today, Tuesday, June 7, 
according to Ezra Adams, adviser. 

He said arrangements were made 
last week with the printing company for

Buildings to be razed 

The old buildings which surround 
Louisiana Dormitory will finally be 
razed this summer. A contract for 
$81,000 has been awarded to Ocean 
Demolition Company of Houston and 
calls for the demolition of four unoc- 
cupied women's residence halls and 
Bienville dining hall which was 
destroyed by fire in June of 1976. 

Demolition of the buildings, all of 
which were constructed before 1928, is 
expected to begin within the next two 
weeks and be completed before the 
beginning of the fall semester in 

The former student dormitories 
which are to be razed are Carondelet 
Hall, Kate Chopin Hall, Agnes Morris 
Hall, and Audobon Hall. 

Barbara Gillis, NSU director of 
housing, said Audobon and Agnes 
Morris Halls were last used in the 
spring of 1973 and the last time the 
university utilized Carondelet and Kate 
Chopin Halls was in 1970. 

When the demolition project is 
complete, the ground on which the 
buildings were located will undergo 
general landscaping. 

Carondelet Hall is just one of 
the old Buildings set to be torn 
down this summer. The 
demolition program should be 
finished by the fall semester.

Phase I 
final at 

rec complex 

How about going for a swim on these 
hot summer afternoons after you get 
out of class? Or, maybe you would like 
to soak up a few of the sun's rays? 

The NSU Recreational Complex pool 
facilities are open for the summer and 
all fulltime students with IDs are 
welcome to come out and use the pool 
and its facilities. 

The L-shaped swimming pool, which 
includes a 15-foot diving well, and the 
accompanying 5,200 square foot pavil- 
ion will be in operation Tuesday 
through Friday from 1 to 9 p.m., 
Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and 
Sunday from 1 to 9 pjn. during the 
summer months. 

Dr. Richard Galloway and Bob 
Wilson have announced that mem- 
bership to utilize the swimming pool 
facilities are also available to the 
general public. Special identification 
cards will be required for admission to 
the facilities. 

Persons interested in obtaining 
memberships should complete ap- 
plications which are available at the 
swimming pool office and the Student 

Dr. Galloway stated that Nor- 
thwestern students who have graduated 
since the spring of 1974 and who paid 
student fees that contributed to the 
development of the facility will be 

issued special alumni ^identification 
cards entitling them to swimming pool 

A few simple rules have been 
established to insure the safety of the 
persons utilizing the pool and its 

All persons are required to take a 
shower before entering the pool. 

No food, drink or tobacco will be 
allowed on the pool deck. 

Only people wearing swimsuits or 
hemmed cutoffs will be allowed on the 
pool deck. 

Only one person will be allowed on the 
diving board at a time. 

Admission will be refused to those 

people who have contagious diseases, 
infections, or any condition having 
infectuous appearance. 

Unnecessary splashing of water, 
roughness, and tag games will not be 

Smoking is prohibited in the bath 
house and pool area. 

Everyone must walk, not run, 
everywhere in the pool area. 

Whenever additional rules are 
deemed necessary for the proper 
conduct at the pool and the protection 
and safety of its patrons the 
management is authorized to issue and 
put into effect such rales, either printed 
or vergal. 


COMPLEX OPENS The NSU recreation complex is shown here 
in its three stages. Construction began on the facility in Spring 

1973 and was finally completed this past spring. The pool is open 
Tuesday through Sunday from 1 to 8 p.m. and admission is free 

to students with ID's. The complex is managed by Bill 
Hochstetler and will later include a golf course, tennis courts 
and a pro shop.

Co's Corner 

One phrase heard quite 
frequently on this campus is 
"student apathy." Before the 
phrase can be discussed, let's 
define the term apathy. Ac- 
cording to Websters' 
Collegiate Dictionary, apathy 
is a lack of interest; in- 

According to NSU, apathy 
manifests itself in several 
ways. For example: all full- 
time students pay a fee which 
enables the SUGB to provide 
concerts, dances, films, and 
other entertainment ac- 

When students feel they 
have been slighted (i.e. a 
concert that stars an en- 
tertainer they don't par- 
ticularly like) there is a 
grumbling and air of general 
discontent prevalent all over 

But, let the SUGB sponsor a 
dance, as they did last Wedn- 
esday, and one will find that 
students would rather sit in 
their rooms or, better yet, go 
somewhere else, pay a $1.50 
cover charge, and dance. In 
essence, they have wasted 
their money; but, more than 
that, they have chosen to show 
the SUGB that they are not 
interested in dances. Or, are 

Another example of student 
apathy is attendance at NSU's 
athletic events. True, hun- 
dreds of students will attend 
football games in the fall and 
basketball in the spring. NSU 
does have a baseball, tennis 
and track team as well as 
several women s' teams, but 
their games are not well at- 
tended except for the handful 
of old faithfuls who make 
every game. 

Even at football and 
basketball games, student 
apathy is in attendance. The 
NSU cheerleaders can turn 
double flips in the air or build 

a human pyramid and get 
more response from the crowd 
than they can by leading 
cheers. Students just don't 
seem to respond. 

Where is this all leading? If 
students show a lack of in- 
terest in extracurricular 
activities, can one assume 
that they are also indifferent 
as to the future of Nor- 
thwestern itself? 

Do they care that 
enrollment is down? Are they 
aware that apathy causes 
classes to be cancelled or not 
offered? Do they realize that 
several degree programs have 
been dropped? 

Do they know that every 
time a degree program is 
dropped or a cut made in the 
overall budget that it becomes 
more and more likely that 
NSU could cease to exist? 

Whether they know it or not, 
they don't seem to care. 

Is there a solution to student 
apathy? As far as one can 
determine, there is no one 
sure answer. Some have 
suggested that motivational 
studies be conducted. Still 
others say "the heck with it 
all" (an apathetic approach.) 

Perhaps the solution lies 
within the student body. If all 
one can do is make ac- 
cusations or complain he is 
only engaging in the fine art of 
"flapping his jaws." Persons 
get tired of hearing about the 
problem unless one has a 
suggestion of or solution to 

For once, have the courage 
to make an accusation and 
suggest a solution. Problems 
do not solve themselves. If any 
reader has an answer to 
student apathy, he is welcome 
to write a letter to the editor 
stating his solution. 

But, if the student body 
reacts as it normally does— 
apathetically, we can all start 

putting together "Remember 
when there was a Nor- 
thwestern State University" 

What can one do at NSU in 
the summer? 

It depends on what interest 
you. There are the pool fac- 
ilities out at the rec complex 
you could make good use of. If 
you enjoy swimming, but 
prefer to avoid the sun's rays, 
the natatorium is open for 
student usage. 

Perhaps you would like to 
play some tennis. Or stroll 
down by Chaplin's lake and do 
some fishing. Better yet, find 
a friend with a boat and go 

skiing on Cane River. 

In the evenings, you could 
attend an SUGB sponsored 
film, bowl, shoot pool or play 
foosball in the Student Union 
games area, or make your 
own entertainment (i.e. card 
tournaments, TV viewing, 
rapping with friends.) 

If you are a history buff or 
just enjoy hearing people 
reminisce about the good old 
days, visit some of Nat- 
chitoches' restored homes and 
historic sites. You might plan 
on attending a performance of 
"Louisiana Cavalier." 

Don't waste time saying 
there is nothing to do. There is 
plenty to do if you only look. 

There's no future in it. 

Last year alone, over half a million 
acres were burned by woods 
arsonists in the South. If you think 
this kind of senseless destruction is 
nothing to be proud of, let's put a 
stop to it. Now.

The east side of the stadium 
was completed before the 1976 
football season. It seats 5,923 
and is utilized by the student 
body for home games. The 
artificial Astroturf field was 
also utilized for the first time 
last season. 

The west side will include 
the 5,000 seats in the old 
permanent side of Demon 
Stadium in addition to a new 
4,500-seat upper deck and the 
press and VIP areas. 

"We have one of the ramps

The total cost of the project 
is $4,812,000, which included 
all construction on both sides 
of the field and the artificial 
surface on the field.

Cripps pointed out, had been 
practically accident free. In 
fact, workmen on the project 
have logged almost 76,000 
man-hours without a lost-time 

The ultra-modern stadium 
bears the name of the state's 
most illustrious sports figures. 
Coach Turpin, who died in 1974 
following a lengthy illness, 
served for 30 years on the NSU 
coaching staff before retiring 
in 1956. 

After serving as an assistant 
coach for eight years, Turpin 
was appointed head football 
coach in 1934. He had the 
longest tenure of any head 
coach in the history of the 
school, and his crowning 
achievement came in 1939 
when the Demons put together 
an 11-0 record, one of only two 
unbeaten seasons in school 

"We are excited about the 
stadium," Cripps said, "and 
we are anxious to get it on up 
so that we'll be ready when the 
season rolls around." 

The Demons will be playing 
Texas-Arlington, Arkansas 
State, Northeast La., Lamar 
University, and McNeese 
State in home battles during 
the 1977 season.

Dyes Speaks o f 
'next season 9 

Northwestern State 
University track and field 
coach Jerry Dyes has to be 
forgiven if he talks in terms of 
"next season." 

After all, Dyes himself says 
that his program is moving 
from "the pigpen to a palace" 
next year. 

The NSU track squad has 
gone two years without having 
a track to call its own. There 
has not been a track and field 
meet on the Northwestern 
campus for two years, and the 
team has been forced to 
workout in a field also used for 
intramural softball. 

Next year will be different, 
though, with the completion of 
the new all-weather track 
facility, scheduled to be 
finished in the summer. 

"Sure, we've been han- 
dicapped without a track to 
practice on," Dyes said, "and 
at times it's been frustrating, 
but we've had some great 
performances over the past 
two years even without any 

In 1976 NSU finished second 
in the NAIA National 
Championships and ninth in 
the NCAA Division n meet. 
This season the Demons 
stepped to Division I, but the 

superlative efforts of the 
previous year went un- 

"It was an in-between year 
for us," Dyes said. "The 
season seemed short and 
incomplete, but we have the 
nucleus of a fine team back." 

The top performances of the 
season came from a pair of 
freshmen, long jumper 
Jarrott Handy of Baton Rouge 
and sprinter Connie Hatcher 
of Jena. Handy was the team's 
leading point getter and had 
bests of 24-11 in the long jump 
and 49-2 in the triple jump. 

Hatcher posted a 10.3 100 
meter clocking this season 
along with a 21.1 in the 220 and 
anchored the sprint relay 
teams during the season. 

The most important thing 
that happened to the team all 
season, though, was not a 
performance. It was an in- 
juryto superstar sprinter 
Robert Hardwell of Jena, 
sensation, who competed in 
last year's Olympic Trials, 
suffered a leg injury prior to 
mid-season and missed the 
remainder of the year. 

"It was an injury that 
paralyzed us," Dyes said. 
"It's hard for some to see how 
an injury can hurt a team that 
badly in track, but we counted 

on Robert for 25 or 30 points 
per meet." 

Without Hardwell, the 
weight of the team fell on 
Handy, Hatcher, versatile 
junior John Barrier, who pole 
vaulted 16-3 and threw the 
javelin 201-8 even though 
hampered by injuries and an 
ulcer during the season, and 
freshman Win dell Bonner, 
who posted a 1:53.0 in the 880- 
yard run. 

"We were hit hard by the 
flu, too," said Dyes. "Tommy 
Swacker and Larry Harris 
both caught a bad case, and 
that knocked a big hole in our 
mile relay. Still, we only 
missed the national qualifying 
standard by five-tenths of a 

Four seniors finished their 
track careers this season, and 
one of them, hurdler Tommie 
Mitchell, set a school record in

seniors were discus thrower i

Ellis announces 
summer program 

by Peggy A. Lewis 

Plans for a unique vacation 
program on the NSU campus 
were announced by Dr. C. B. 
"Lum" Ellis, assistant to the 
president and director of 
external affairs. The Demon 
Vacation Program was 
designed for NSU alumni, 
their families, and friends. 

Northwestern Alumni 
Association is sponsoring the 
event which is scheduled for 
June 24 through July 1. 

"The purpose of the 
program is to give former 
students an opportunity to 
return to the campus and 
observe the progress made in 
developing NSU's programs," 
stated Dr. Ellis. "We feel like 
the university needs to keep 
good relations with the 
alumni. We want to enlist their 
support for all the university's 
programs and get them in- 
volved in alumni activities 
and student recruitment." 

The cost for the Demon 
Vacation is $6.50 per person 
per day. The cost includes 
lodging in Sabine Hall and 
meals at Iberville Dining Hall. 

The participants may choose 
to attend any number of days 
during the vacation period. 

"The program has many 
recreational and educational 
opportunities," commented 
Robert Jones, graduate 
assistant at external affairs. 

Available recreational 
activities include swimming 
at NSU's new outdoor 
recreation complex, sailing, 
water skiing, canoeing, tennis, 
bowling, fishing, archery, 
hiking, billiards, basketball, 
badminton, art, golf, table 
games, table tennis, racquet 
ball, and horse back riding. 

Participation in Old Nat- 
chitoches Tours and the 
viewing of a performance of 
"Louisiana Cavalier" will also 
be included in the vacation 

Plans are being made to 
have each department offer 
mini-lectures on recent 
developments in academic 
areas. The topics may include 
the metric system, ecology, 
and the stock market. 

Additional information may 
be obtained from the Office of 
External Affairs.

Co h Co men Who ' 8 at f ault? 

Last week a group of con- 
cerned students who reside in 
the various dormitories on 
campus came to talk with this 

Their complaint: Main- 
tenance. The students said, 
"How are we expected to 
study when we have to mop up 
raw sewage from the floor?" 
(This incident happened a 
couple of weeks ago. After 
repairs were effected, the 
incident recurred.) 

The students said the ad- 
ministration was really 
concerned about decreasing 
enrollment, they would see 
that the dorms in which 
students will be placed are 
livable. According to these 

students, they are always 
experiencing problems with 
the plumbing, heating and air 
conditioning ( the most chronic 

One student told this editor 
that his air conditioner had 
been out for three weeks, and 
not one had been by to repair 

The students would like 
clarification as to how 
maintenance is defined on 
campus. They believe 
maintenance and repairs are 
two completely different 
areas. Repairs are what they 
get from maintenance but 
they would like to see some 
preventitive measures taken 
such as flushing out drains

specting air conditioning and

The group told this editor 
that they did not like being 
exploited. They feel that 
Housing is not at fault; that 
department has done all it can 
possibly do. They see the fault 
lying entirely with main- 

According to the students : if 
enrollment is to be increased 
or held constant, there must 
be something done about 
sewer pipes that back up, air 
conditioners and heaters that 
don't work, and showers that 
scald a person when a toilet is 
flushed, to name a few. 

Under these circumstances, 
they said, who can expect a 
student to live on campus in 
the dormitory much less come 
to Northwestern. 


Barbara Gillis, director of 
Housing, told this editor that 
her office follows a certain 
procedure when requesting 
repairs and maintenance. 

A resident complains to his 
or her house director who in 
turn informs Housing of the 
problem. Housing prepares a 
maintenance request form 
which is sent to Cecil Knotts 
for his signature as approving 
agent and then is returned to

the office of University 
Facilities where each form is 
distributed to the main-

director and-or Mrs. Gillis 
place telephone calls to effect 
the necessary repair work. 


Ted Wright, superviser of

editor that the first priority of 
his office is to keep Housing 
and the Dining Hall in 
operation. He said the 
university does not have the 
crew to solve every problem 
on the spur of the moment, nor 

can every problem be solved 
until the necessary finds to 
effect certain repairs are 

Wright said his department 
gets no cooperation from the 
students. Many times his 
people have pulled things out 
of clogged pipes that were 
never meant to be there in the 
first place. He said main- 
tenance is a two-way affair. 

At time his office is hindered 
because of the amount of 
construction work it has or- 
ders to do; this is due to the 
fact that there is not money 
available to hire a contractor. 

Wright told this editor that 
they try to do the best they can 
with the number of people and 
the money they have. 

He emphasized the point 
that any student who feels his 
or her complaint or problem 
has not been properly handled 
may contact him directly and 
he will see to it immediately. 

He said, "There is not 
anything we won't try to do to 
alleviate the problem."

our school once had a few 
years ago. NSU is being

this area is deciding whether

code, probing into the whys of

Reynolds to Seattle 

Billy Reynolds thought he 
would go higher in Friday's 
National Basketball 
Association draft. 

NSU head coach Tynes 
Hildebrand thought that his 6- 
foot-6 superstar would have 
gone higher than the seventh 
round, too. But Hildebrand 
wasn't complaining too much. 

"If I had my choice of clubs 
for Billy to go to in the NBA, 
I'd choose Seattle," 
Hildebrand said after the 
Seattle SuperSonics had made 
Reynolds their seventh round 
pick in the annual selection of 
college talent. 

"There are already some 
Louisiana players on the 
Seattle roster," said 

Hildebrand, "and, of course, 
Bob Hopkins is a Louisiana 
native." Hopkins, took over 
the coaching reins of the 
SuperSonics from Bill Russell 
at the conclusion of the past 

"I was surprised that a 
quality player like Billy was 
still available that late in the 
draft," Hopkins said. "I'm 
hoping that some clubs who 
passed him by will live to 
regret it." 

Reynolds, NSU's all-time 
leading scorer, was the first 
Demon and one of only 17 
players in state collegiate 
history to top the 2,000-point 
mark in a career, a list headed 
by Hopkins. He poured in 2,009 

points during his career, one 

of numerous records he set. 

"Billy is just a super 

player," said NSU head coach 

Tynes Hildebrand. "He works 

hard for everything he gets, 

and you have to respect a man 

who does that. I think he will 

be a tremendous asset to the 

Seattle club, and I have no 

doubt that he will do a 

tremendous job for them." 
Three other La. players 

were selected in the draft. 

Tulane's Jeff Cummings went 

to the Boston Celtics in the 

fourth round, Mike Mc- 

Conathy of La. Tech went to 

the Chicago Bulls in the fourth 

round and USL's Calvin Crews 

was the sixth-round choice of 

the Atlanta Hawks.

year. Hill is now assistant SID 
at Oklahoma State University. 

It was the third national 
award for the NSU sports 
information office this year.

How about 
talking to us? 

by JanE. Daiy 

Got a problem? Are you 
fighting with your 
sweetheart? Troubles at 
home? You just can't seem to 
pass that certain course? Or 
do you want to just sit and talk 
to someone who will listen? 

Now is your chance to talk to 
someone confidentially about 
whatever is on your mind, 
whether personal or other- 
wise, and at the same time 
given graduate counseling 
students practical experience. 

Dr. Keith Runion pointed 
out that couseling students 
working on their masters 
degree have had much 
training in counseling. 

They will talk with any 
client about a problem he or 
she may have. 

Dr. Runion stressed that all 
talks are confidential, and will 
be taped if the client is in 
agreement. If the student 

agrees, the tap will be 
available to Dr. Runion and 
other counseling students for 
critique without loss of con- 

"This will provide a service 
to students and at the same 
time help the counseling 
students. The problem doesn't 
have to be really traumatic,

scholars from four continents 
were chosen to contribute

The result of their 
collaboration is a book which 
is entitled, "Germany in the 
Pacific and the Far East, 1870- 
1914." It was edited by Dr. 
John A. Moses, reader in 
European history at the 
University of Queensland in 
Australia, and Dr. Paul M. 
Kennedy, reader in history at 
the EasUniversity of East 
Anglia in England. 

The University of Queen-

book in March 1977. 

Dr. Brown's contribution is 
chapter 13, "The German 
Acquisition of the Caroline

"The main thrust of the 
book is to get leading scholars 
in the field of German im- 
perialism to write on different 
aspects of German im-

commented Dr. Brown. "I 
believe it's value lies in the 
fact that all the scholars who

provide sources of in-

their summer movie program. 

ON Thursday and Friday, 
July 7 & 8, the committee will 
show EMBRYO starring Rock

Hudson plays an embry ologist 
who is involved in a bizarre 
fetal laboratory experiment. 
The result of his ex- 
perimentation is a test-tube

beautiful young woman. 

Termed a science-fact 
thriller by many critics, the 
movie has a startling turn of 
events which increase the 
horrifying impact that such a 

thing could possibly occur. 

Burt Reynolds and 
Catherine Denevue take to the 
screen July 15 & 16, in 
HUSTLE. Reynolds plays a 
square cop who spends his 
days coping with cynicism and 
corruption as he investigates 
the suicide of a young girl. At 
night he returns to his high- 
priced prostitute girlfriend 
(Denevue) to watch TV. 

The film deals with humans 
who are trapped in a shady 
world where right and wrong 
are no longer discernible. 

All film features begin at 
7:30 p.m. in the Arts and 
Science Auditorium. IDs are

Dr. Ramon Brodermann, a 
64 year-old professor at North- 
western State University will 
receive his Juris Doctor 
Degree in early August from 
Lewis University, Glenn 
Ellyn, Illinois. 

Dr. Brodermann began 
studying for this degree in 
February, 1975. He ex- 
plained his purpose for ad- 
vancing further in his 
academic background in the 
United States. "By profession 
I was a lawyer in my home 
country of Cuba," he said. 

Dr. Brodermann practiced 
law in Havanna for 20 years 
and this award will mark his 
fourth doctors degree. He 
holds two doctoral degrees in 
Political, Economical, and 
Social Science. In addition to 
these degrees Dr. Broder- 
mann has a doctorate in 
Spanish grammer and 

"I have been studying my 
whole life," he said. On Aug. 2, 
the attorney will be 65 years- 
old, and "when one has nine 
degrees, studying is a very 
important factor," he added. 

From the University of 
Havanna, Cuba; he earned 
B.A., B.S., License of 
Diplomat, Consular in Law, 
Doctoral of Law, Political, 
Social and Economic Science. 

The Brodermanns' made 
their home in the states in 
1960. Dr. Brodermann decided 
to go back to college and he 
earned a B.A., M.S. degree in 
Spanish from Indiana State 
University. He later attended 
Florida State University and 
was awarded a Ph.D. in 
Spanish Grammer and 
Literature. Upon completing 
this work, "I was 60 years-old 
and this was not enough, " he 

How can one persons be in 
two places at one time? Dr. 
Brodermann taught at NSU 
and attended Lewis Univer- 

program for Cuban lawyers 
living in Illinois (hispanic 
program). The scholar ex- 
plained the expenses were 
very high and "I almost had to 
sell my dog." Dr. Brodermann 
flew to Illinois Fridays, at- 
tended classes all day 
Saturday and returned on 

Sunday night," he explained. 

The successful lawyer was 
the son of a former Cuban 
Diplomat. In Cuba Dr. 
Brodermann was a specialist 
in social and economic 

"I do not plan to practice 
law in Natchitoches," said the 
attorney. "This city has 
enough lawyers for such a 
small town," he added. He will 
make arrangements to, 
practice in Florida or in 
Illinois. "My home will always 
be in Natchitoches," he added. 

The Louisiana Board of 
Education policy requires one 
to retire at age 65. "If I can't 
go on teaching, my interest 
will be in my private prac- 
tice," he said. Since the fall of 
1966, Dr. Brodermann has 
been a part of the NSU faculty. 
However, his plans are to 
work at NSU as long as 
possible, "then practice law 
until I'm 125 years old," he

Collis 1906-1930 average of

outstanding for the U.S. 

In December 1944 he was 
approached by the scout of the 
Washington Senator, and Joe 
Cambria offered him a con- 
tract for the 1945 season. Dr. 
Brodermann rejected the 
offer because he was already 
engaged in his practice of law. 

In 1948 he started playing 
softball with the Casino

Championship three years, in 
1951, 1952 and 1954. The team 
was invited to play in the

NSU canoeing course in journal 

An article detailing NSU's 
popular Whitewater canoeing 
course appears in the current 
issue of the "Journal of 
Physical Education and 
Recreation," official 
publication of the American 
Alliance of Health, Physical 
Education and Recreation. 

Written by Jim Simmons, 
associate professor and a 
long-time canoeing en- 
thusiast, the article focuses on 
the Whitewater canoeing 
techniques that Northwestern 
students are taught in 
preparation for their annual 
six-day trips to the Whitewater 
rivers of the Ozark Mountains 
in Arkansas. 

Simmons, instructor for the 
Northwestern course, is a 

member of the American 
Canoe Association, and he 
participates annually in the 
group's regional and national 
events. He also is an active 
member of the Ozark Society, 
which promotes conservation 
and canoeing in Oklahoma, 
Missouri, Louisiana and 

According to Simmons, 
basic canoeing has been 
popular at NSU for many 
years, but formal classes in 
the sport did not begin until 
1975. Participants in the ac- 
tivity classes are evaluated on 
the basis of previous ex- 
perience, physical fitness 
level and swimming ability. 
Many of the students who 
enroll in the Whitewater 

Prep camps held 

The NSU coaches have been 
busy recently due to 
organizing and conducting 
both basketball and football 
camps for high school 

The camps annually take 
high school players from 
Louisiana and surrounding 
states and help in their 
training for the upcoming 

A total of 70 high school 
basketball players registered 
and participated in NSU's 11th 
annual Basketball Camp held 
last week. 

"Our camp enrollment is 
not as high as in past years," 
said NSU head basketball 
coach Tynes Hildebrand, "but 
we feel we're making up in 
quality what we lack in 
quantity. We have some ex- 
cellent players in the camp 
and we hope we can help them 
become even better." 

Northeast La. University 
head coach Lenny Fant and 
NLU assistant Benny Hollis 
are teaming with Hildebrand, 
NSU assistant Dr. Derwood 
Duke and graduate assistant 
Ralph Pirn as collegiate 

coaches in the camp. In ad- 
dition, former NSU star Dan 
Bell is serving as a special 

Two weeks ago head football 
coach A. L. Williams along 
with a professional staff, 
conducted NSU's annual 
Football Camp. 

"We were very pleased with 
our camp and our campers 
this year," said Williams. 
"We had some quality boys in 
the camp and all of them had 
tremendous attitudes. I hope 
they will use some of the 
things we tried to teach in the 
camp when they return to 
their own high school teams." 

Approximately 50 high 
school players took part in the 
camp, which featured special 
instruction from professional 
stars Joe Ferguson of the 
Buffalo Bills, David Lee and 
Bert Jones of the Baltimore 
Colts and Bob Brunet of the 
Washington Redskins. 

course have completed the 
basic course in canoeing. 

Simmons said the trips to 
the Ozark Mountains allow 
students to receive a week of 
canoeing instruction and 
practice on famous 
Whitewater rivers. Prior to 
gaining practical experience 
in the canoes, they are taught 
skills and techniques that are 
utilized in Whitewater 

Through their participation 
in the course, students are 
given a review and thorough 
evaluation of the basic 
canoeing skills and are 
presented the information 
needed to run the sometimes 
dangerous Whitewaters of 

The students also learn the 
fundamental strokes for 
white-water canoeing and the 
important maneuvering 
techniques. Safety skills and 
rescue techniques are also 
taught and outfitting the 
canoeist and rigging the canoe 
for a trip are emphasized. 

Simmons states that the 
first day on the river is 
devoted to practicing the basic 
maneuvers and to becoming 
familiar with a fast current. 
Canoeing partners learn to 
work effectively from either 
bow or stern and to work 
together in running the rapids. 

"Since partners must 
constantly work as a team," 
said Simmons, "much em- 
phasis is given to being cer- 
tain that each person un- 

derstands how the entire 
canoe must be handled to 
successfully execute a par- 
ticular technique." 

The second day of the trip 
allows students to float on a 
calmer section of the river. On 
the following days, partic- 
ipants progress to more 
challenging parts of the Big 
Piney or one of the other 
rivers in the area. 

Instructional sessions 
around the campfire are 
conducted each night of the 
trip to review the day's float 
and to help students who had 
problems with particular 
techniques while on the river. 
"This is an especially good 
time to stress safety 
techniques while on the 
river." Simmons added. 

Outstanding athletes inked 

Another batch of out- 
standing athletes have been 
signed by the NSU recruiters. 

In track and field Mark 
Dupas, one of the most ver- 
satile performers in Louisiana 
has signed. In the 1977 state 
high school meet Dupas 
captured the 100-yard dash, 
the 220-yard dash, the long 
jump and the triple jump 
during the competition. From 
Opelousas Catholic High 
School comes Kelvin Stewart. 
Stewart won the District 3-AA 
mile title and finished fifth in 
state. Also in track comes 
John Faulk who cleared a 
season best of 6-8 in the high 
jump for Menard High School 
of Alexandria. 

The men's basketball Mike 
Fyler of Dodge City Junior 
College has inked with NSU. 
Fyler was a two-year starter 
for Dodge City and averaged 
17 points and nine rebounds 

per game. Also in basketball 
comes a local player, Anthony 
Robertson of Natchitoches- 
Central. Robertson made All- 
District 2-AAAA team during 
his junior and senior year. His 
best performance was a 24- 
point, 20-rebound effort again-

professor of biological 
sciences at Northwestern, is 
the adviser for NSU students 
who are enrolled in the 
university's pre-medicine 

"Having nine of 14 students 
accepted for medical schools 
is a very high percentage for 
acceptance," said Outland, 
"especially when it is un- 
derstood that to be accepted a 
senior must have at least a 
3.85 academic average on a 4.0 
scale on all college work. 
Naturally, we are very proud 
of the accomplishments of 
these students."

NSU releases 
new book edition 

A new edition of Ruth Cross' 
"Soldier of Good Fortune," an 
historical novel about Nat- 
chitoches founder Louis 
Juchereau de St. Denis, was 
recently released by the 
Archives Division of NSU. 

John M. Price, NSU ar- 
chivist, said "Soldier of Good 
Fortune" is the second book 
by Ruth Cross to be published 
by the Archives Division 
Endowment at Northwestern. 

The Archive Division En- 
dowment was established in 
1976 when an anonymous 
donor contributed the initial 
funding for the publication of 
Miss Cross' "The Beautiful 
and the Doomed." At the time 
of the donation, the native of 
Winnfield agreed to assign her 
copyright privileges to the 
Archives Division stipulating 
that proceeds from her books 
would be placed in the en- 

The cover of the new edition 

of "Soldier of Good Fortune" 
was created by John Sullivan, 
graduate advertising art 
student at NSU. 

The novel, originally 
published in New York in 1936, 
will be available at the Grand 
Ecore Amphitheater 
throughout the summer. Miss 
Cross was on hand to 
autograph copies of the novel 
at a special performance of 
Louisiana Cavalier several 
weeks ago. 

In recent years, NSU has 
acquired most of the published 
and unpublished materials 
produced during Miss Cross' 
long writing career. The 
documents became known as 
the Ruth Cross Papers and 
were added to the Archives 
Division's substantial 
holdings of literary materials 
on Louisiana and the south. 
The papers may be seen n the

Fire breaks out 
in choral room 

by Ruth Dennis 

A new Steinway grand 
piano, and a Yamaha piano, 
were the only two items not 
damaged in a fire in the 
Choral room of the Fine Arts 
Building, July 9, 11 a. m. The 
two pianos are valued at 

The fire is believed to have 
started because of a short in 
the air-conditioning unit, but 
is still under investigation. 
Ted Wright, Supervisor of 
University Facilities, said it is 
unsure at present how much 
will need to be done to repair 

everything, but that they have 
already begun working on it. 

The items damaged were a 
portable blackboard, a table, 
and the cover to the Steinway 
piano. The walls, floor and 
ceiling were smoke damaged 
and some of this will have to 
be redone. The air-conditioner 
unit completely burned. 

Natchitoches Fire Depart- 
ment arrived promptly to put 
the fire out. A hole was cut in 
one wall and exhaust fans 
were used to cool the room. 

Dr. J. Robert Smith, head of 
the music department, said, 

"This points out and em- 
phasizes the need for a 
complete electrical inspection 
of the wiring system." Dr. 
Smith explained that $200,000 
has been appropriated for 
architect fees to begin this 
type work during the fall 
semester. The Fine Arts 
Building was not originally 
wired for all the air- 
conditioner units that the 
building has at present. 

Dr. Smith added that the 
maintenance men were on the 
job first thing Monday mor- 
ning, cleaning and seeing 
what repairs were needed.

iN»U television center 
completes documentary 

The television center at 
Northwestern State 
University has completed 
production on a 30-minute 
television decumentary which 
focuses on a variety of 
recreational opportunities 
that are available in the 
state's wildlife management 

The documentary, which 
will soon be distributed to 
television stations throughout 
the state, was funded through 
a grant awarded to Nor- 
thwestern by the Louisiana 
Department of Wildlife and 

Thomas N. Whitehead, 
producer-director of the show, 
which was filmed under the 

supervision of Huey Sanders, 
supervisor of the education 
section for the Louisiana 
Department of Wildlife and 

Paul H. Keyser, chief 
engineer for educational tele- 
vision at NSU, was the 
engineer for the project, and 
the narrator is Bernadette 
Monlezun, director of the Lake 
Charles Visitors Bureau. 

All production work for the 
docementary was performed 
by students enrolled in 
television production courses 
at Northwestern, which 
recently modernized its 
television center with ad- 
vanced electronic equipment 
to provide a color capability to 

allow acceptable program- 
ming for commercial and 
public broadcast television. 

The documentary also 
explains that the Passe A. 
Loutre Wildlife Management 
Area has one of the greatest 
concentrations of water foul in 
the United States. An out- 
standing example of high 
utilization of water control 
structures can be seen at the

is one of several projects 
Northwestern 's television 
center is working on through 
the Louisiana Department of 
Wildlife and Fisheries.

course to be taught on the NSU 
campus in Natchitoches. This 
short course is Art 403 — 

Advanced Studio Problems — 
which is being offered for 3 
semester hours graduate or 
undergraduate credit. 

The dulcimer is a stringed 
instrument which originated 
in the mountain areas of this 
country during Pioneer days. 
The recent revival of folk art 
and music has bourght about a 
renewed interest in the 

The course will be taught by 
Dr. Bill Bryant, Professor of 
Art at Northwestern State 
University. Dr. Bryant has 
proven his versatility in the 
Arts through playing and 
creating varieties of this 
native American musical 
instrument during the past 
five years. He has comducted 
four workshops in dulcimer 
making and has received a 
research grant to study 
construction of the in- 
strument. He has personally- 
made more than 55 dulcimers. 

The workshop will em- 
phasize design and crafts 
through projects involving the 
theory, design, and con- 
struction of the American 
dulcimer. This course in- 
cludes lectures on the history 
of various American Folk Art 
techniQues of dulcimer 
production. This short course 
will be offered from August 1 
through August 19 in Room 
121A of the Art Center from 7- 
10 p. m. Monday through 
Friday. The class will be 
limited to a maximum of 20 
students and registration for 
the course will be on the first 
come, first serve basis. 
Persons interested in taking 
the course may pre-register 
from today through Monday,

In addition to regular lec-

Several local ministers have 
agreed to give guest lectures 
during the semester on their 
particular sect of Christianity. 

"This new course," noted 
Snowden, "will complement 
our popular one on Eastern 
religious thought. While there 
are many people turning to the 
East today for religious 
revitalization, just as many 
want to retain their Western 
religious heritage. This course 
will, I think, demonstrate the 
richness of the Christian 
tradition — both religiously 
and philosophically." 

The course can be taken for 
undergraduate credit and has 
no prerequisites.

August of 1966, Kilpatrick served as 
dean of the college at Northwestern for 
six months before assuming the 

Kilpatrick, who has served as a 
teacher, coach and administrator in 
Louisiana education systems for 30 
years, will become a vice-president of 
the AMI Group of Shreveport upon his 
retirement from Northwestern. 

Chairman of the Department of 
Elementary and Secondary Education 
at Northeast Louisiana University 
before moving to NSU, Kilpatrick was 
on the Northeast faculty for 15 years. 

Before becoming department 
chairman at Northeast, he was athletic 
director and basketball coach and also 

taught health and physical education, 
mathematics, education and 

From 1946 until 1961, Kilpatrick was a 
mathematics and social studies teacher 
at Jonesboro Hodge High School and 
also served as the school's assistant 
football and head basketball coach. His 
basketball team won the Class A state 
championship in 1950-51. 

Kilpatrick, a 56-year-old native of 
Eros in Jackson Parish, served in the 
United States Air Force from 1942 
through 1946 as a weather observer and 

A 1938 graduate of Eros High School,

Nicholls State— have served longer 
terms as president than Kilpatrick, a 
former chairman of the Presidents' 
Council of Louisiana Colleges and 

Unprecedented enrollment increases, 
academic advancement and physical

Kilpatrick's tenure at Northwestern. 
Enrollment, which was below 5,000

presidency at NSU, now exceeds 6,500. 

Numerous new degree programs 
have been developed during 
Kilpatrick's administration, including 
two-year associate degrees in various 
academic fields and the first doctoral 
degrees, which were established in 1969 
just one year before Northwestern 
achieved university status. 

Physical development during 
Kilpatrick's tenure has changed the

The Transformation: A Guide to the 
Inevitable Changes in Humankind, in 

His most recent book, The Ultimate

space can connect one to the motions of 
the universe itself."

Drama dept. presents plays 

"Card Index" and "Gone Out", two 
one-act plays written by Polish 
Playwright Tadeusz Rozewicz, will be 
the first production of the University 
Theater for the fall semester, ac- 
cording to Dr. E. Robert Black. 

Tryouts for the two plays will be held 
from 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Wed- 
nesday, Sept. 7 in the Little Theater. 

The University Theater production 
Mil be presented Oct. 19-22. 

Dr. Black described "Card Index" 
*nd "Gone Out" as "comedies which 
*re surrealistic in form and considered 
*vant-garde theater." 

The two plays will be presented for 
the Louisiana College Theater Festival, 
4 regional state festival that will be 

held in late October. 

"5 on the Blackhand Side" a comedy, 
written bv Charles L. Russell, will be 
the second production of the season. 

An all-black cast is needed for this 
play and the group, which has not yet 
been selected or officially named, will 
work in conjunction with the University 

Dr. Black will produce "5 on the 
Blackhand Side" and Edith Harris will 
serve as student producer. 

The dates of tryouts for this 
production will be announced in the 
next issue of the Current Sauce. 

Any student is eligible to tryout for 
University Theater. A student does not 
have to be a drama major or be 

enrolled in a drama class to participate 
in Theater activities. 

According to Dr. Black, students are 
needed not only as actors and ac- 
tresses, but also to work on sets, make- 
up, technical crews, and other 
production activities. 

Tentative productions have also been 
planned for the spring semester. 

"Living Fat" written by Grambling 
University playwright Judi Mason is 
scheduled to be presented during the 
spring. Ms. Mason won the American 
College Playwright Award in 1975, and 
"Living Fat" was produced off- 
Broadway last year by the Negro 
Ensemble Company. 

Biological Sciences Building, Teacher 
Education Center, Student Recreation 
Complex, Physical Education Center 
and the Eugene P. Watson Memorial

is currently taking shape in the NSU 

When asked what accomplishments 
stand out the most Kilpatrick said, 
"The projects that I am most proud of 
during my 11 ^ years at Northwestern 
are our new library and our ability to 
get University status, and to maintain 
our doctoral programs." 

Vitally interested in athletics at both 
the high school and college levels, 
Kilpatrick was Louisiana's Coach of the 
Year while at Northeast in 1955, and he 
also served as president of the Gulf 
States Conference. 

"I feel as though I left the physical 
plant at NSU in good shape for the 
faculty and students to do the best job in 
the future for recruitment and 
academics," the retiring President 

ANNOUNCED RETIREMENT-Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick an- 
nounced that he will retire as NSU president Jan. 31, 1978. He 
has been president of the university shce 1966. Prior to 
assuming the presidency he served as a teacher, coach and 
administrator in Louisiana education systems. Kilpatrick 
earned his bachelor's degree from Northwestern in 1943. 

Dedication highlights opener 

With a flurry of fanfare, ceremony 
and before a record crowd, the Harry 
"Rags" Turpin Stadium was formally 
dedicated Saturday night when the 
Demons hosted the powerful University 
of Texas at Arlington in the season 

Highlighting the dedication 
ceremonies were remarks by Gov. 
Edwin Edwards at half-time and the 
unveiling by the governor of the plaque 
which will be on permanent display at 
the new stadium. 

During the pre-game program the 
NSU Demon Marching Band, directed 
by R. Wayne Blackwell, gave a per- 
formance and the stadium was of- 
ficially named in honor of Turpin. 

President Arnold R. Kilpatrick gave 
a brief speech during pre-game ac- 
tivities, recognized the members of 
Turpin's family and introduced Mrs. 

Turpin, who was escorted to the field by 
former NSU coaches Cracker Brown 
and Walter Ledet. 

A portrait of Turpin was 
unveiled and Mrs. Turpin presented the 
picture to President Kilpatrick for 
display in the stadium. 

Other pre-game activities included a 
foot parade lead by the band and the 
NSU cheerleaders. The parade ended in 
front of the Student Union where the 
cheerleaders held a pep rally. 

A new Yamaha Enduro motorcycle 
donated by Don Jones of the Yamaha 
Center was given away during the 
course of the evening. 

Special guests of the university for 
the stadium dedication were elected 
local, area and state officials, former 
NSU coaches and athletes who were at 
Northwestern during Turpin's tenure, 

members of the State Board of Trustees 
for Colleges and Universities, 
superintendent of the state's public 
school systems, secondary school 
principals throughout North Louisiana 
and base commanders from England 
Air Force Base and Fort Polk. 

The official opening of Turpin 
Stadium, which is part of a $10 million 
athletic complex taking shape on the 
Northwestern campus— comes after 
some five years of planning and more 
than two years of construction. 

The new stadium, which has an ar- 
tificial turf playing field, features a 
modern 6,000 seat facility on the east 
side of the field and a 10,000 seat double- 
deck west side-which includes enclosed, 
air-conditioned box seats and a multi- 
level press box.

food was the order of the 
evening at the SGA Night which 
was held Aug. 25. The picnic- 

type supper kicked off the 
activities. SGA president David 
Walker and President Arnold 
Kilpatrick made brief 

statements prior to the inter — 
squad scrimmage and the in- 
troduction of the football team. 

Page 2 CURRENT SAUCE September 6, 1977 

President Arnold R. 
Kilpatrick is retiring January 
31, 1978 and the question arises 
— Who will be the next 
president of Northwestern? 
Who makes the decision as to 
who will receive the ap- 
pointment? What can a 
student and-or faculty 
member do to have a voice in 
the selection? 

As of September 1, the 
following persons have of- 
ficially applied to the State 
Board of Trustees for Colleges 
and Universities for the 

Dr. Robert Alost 

Dr. Ed Anders 

Dr. Rene Bienvenu 

Dr. C. B. Ellis 

Dr. Richard Galloway 

Dr. Hoyt Reed 

Dr. T. P. Southerland 

The decision as to who will 
be appointed as the next 
president of this university 
lies solely with the 17 mem- 
bers of the Board of Trustees. 
It is their decision and their 
decision alone. 

As to what a student or 
vacuity member can do — 
remember this is not a 
popularity contest. At this 
point in Northwestern's 
career, the decision as to who 
should be the next president is 
crucial to the survival of this 
institution. The Board of 
Trustees should evaluate each 
candidate as to his ability to 
fulfill the administrative 
duties as head of the 

In the Board of Trustees 
hand (to employ a cliche) re- 
sts the future of Northwestern. 

In their evaluation of each 
candidate there is hope that 
the members will determine if 
the candidate can effectively 
handle such areas as ad- 
ministrative restructuring, 
faculty motivation, re- 
evaluation of academic 
standards, and recruitment 
and retention of students. 


The Board of Trustees will 
interview the candidates for 
the position of president, 
Thursday, September 15, with 
their decision to be announced 
soon thereafter. 



Who shall "serve at the 
pleasure of the President"? 
Due to some unusual wording 
of an emergency bill at the 
first SGA meeting this 
semester, a secretarial 
assistant has been created 
who "will serve at the 
pleasure of the president." 

Of course, one wonders just 
what the phrase means. The 
bill was amended to read as 
such so that if the person 
filling the position is derelict 
in duty the SGA president can 
fire him without approval of 
the Senate. 

Let's hear it 
for the Demons!

something to cheer about!

(Editor's Note: Reflections 
is a column which hosts 
members of the United 
Campus Ministers 
organization addressing 
readers on issues they feel are 
relevant to students. This 
week's guest is Bob Town- 
send, the United Methodist 
Campus Minister.) 

There's something in human 
nature that continually calls 
us to start afresh, to begin 
again. To be authentically 
human is to look forward to 
the future with anticipation 
and hope. To be fully alive is to 
affirm and to celebrate the 
new. As a rule we humans use 
every imaginable excuse to 
celebrate the new— birthdays, 
New Years Day, an- 
niversaires, high days, holy 
days, holidays. All of these 
occasions are times to 
remember the past, but more 
importantly to anticipate the 
future. Such anticipation 
usually reflects a new spirit of 
hope. We all need occasions to 
shed the mistakes, disap- 
pointments and heartaches of 
the past, and substitute in 
their place resolutions that the 
future will be better. 

Many have criticized our 
society as one that is washed- 
up and dying. However, as 
long as we celebrate and look 

forward to the new, and do not 
dread it, there is a chance for 
improvement. As long as we 
grasp every opportunity to 
affirm the new— to attempt a 
better future; as long as we 
realize that we are not bound 
forever to the past, then we 
indeed have hope. 

Reality, however, forces us 
to admit that we only rarely 
live up to our goals and ideals; 
yet it is good that we set goals 
and standards, then re-set 
them, and continue to do so. 

For in reality it's not in the 
achievement of goals that life 
takes on its richest and 
deepest meanings, but rather 
in the striving toward them. 
Life, in other words, is in the 
living, and not in having lived. 
The joys of life are to be found 
more in the journey than in the 

And so we find sourselves at 
the beginning of yet another 
school year. The human 
tendency to see hope in the 
new is as much a part of the 
educational process as the 
rest of life. Just as each new 
calendar year is viewed with 
promise and hope, so too is 
each new semester. 
Education, like living, is a life- 
long process; a process to 
which everyone has to con- 
tinually commit and 
recommit themselves 
throughout life. The 
educational process is not 
something which ceases with 
the termination— whether by 
graduation or whatever— of 
one's formal education. A 
college diploma indicates to 
the world that the recipient 
has (hopefully) attained a 
certain level of proficiency is 
a particular field. It does not 

indicate by any stretch 
imagination that one 

"knows it all" or "has it 
made." A college education, 
no matter how thorough, no 
matter how many degrees, 
only barely scratches the; 
surface of the immense world 
of knowledge available today. 
The truly educated are not 
necessarily those who know 
the most, but rather those who. 
realize what they DON'T know 
, and who are willing to do 
something about it. This fact 
applies not only to incoming 
freshmen, but graduating 
seniors as well; not only to 
tenured faculty members, but 
also to maintenance workers 
Education is truly a life-long 
process and the truly smart 
are those who see a new school 
year as yet another op^ 
portunity to broaden their 
grasp of knowledge and truth,

Vicki Parrish named 
director of dance line 

Vicki Parrish of Nat- 
chitoches has been named 
choreographer and director of 
the Cane River Belles dance 
line which will perform this 
year with the Northwestern 
State University Demon 
Marching Band. 

Mrs. Parrish's selection as 
choreographer and director of 
the NSU band's newest 
auxiliary group was an- 
nounced in early August by 
Northwestern music depart- 
ment chairman Dr. J. Robert 

Smith and NSU director of 
bands R. Wayne Blackwell. 

The new director of the Cane 
River Belles is a native of 
Atlanta, Ga. She earned the 
M. S. degree in dance from 
Louisiana State University at 
Baton Rouge in 1975. As a 
graduate student at LSU, she 
was associated with the Court 
Jesters which performed pom 
pon routines for LSU 
basketball games. 

Before enrolling in graduate 
school at LSU, Mrs. Parrish 

served for five years as a 
major instructor for Ha If time 
USA, a nationally-known 
program which conducts 
training camps for high school 
and college dance lines and 
drill teams throughout the 
south and southwest. As an 
instructor for Halftime USA, 
she worked with Ms. Barbara 
Tidwell, founder and director 
of the Strutters dance line at 
Southwest Texas State Univ- 

Mrs. Parrish earned a B. S. 
degree in health, physical 
education and recreation from 
West Georgia College, where 
she was a cheerleader for four 
years. Her husband, Dan, was 
a basketball star at the 
Carrollton, Ga. college. 

Following graduation from 
West Georgia College, Mrs. 
Parrish taught for three years 
at Bremen High School in 
Georgia, where she was the 
choreographer and director of 
the Devil Debs dance line. She 
founded the group, which was 
the first precision dance team 
to be established in that 
section of the state. 

The Cane River Belles of 
Northwestern are sponsored 
by the university's Depart- 
ment of Music and will per- 
form throughout the year with 
the Demon Marching Band at 
football and basketball games 
and other university ac- 

Auditions were conducted 
this summer to select 16 
coeds, including officers, who 
will perform with the Cane 
River Belles during their first

LOOK CAREFULLY— Although the map of 
campus is confusing at first glance, the wise 
student, faculty or staff member will look closely 
at the details to see just where he WILL be able to 
park when the new parking sticker plan is stuck to 
the bumpers of campus bound cars. Parking 
areas are being divided between faculty and staff, 

residents and commuters (who will have totsfo' 
their restricted use only) and open lots, whi<* 
anyone (including faculty, staff, residents 
commuters) may use. For those concerned w

that certain records are kept 
on students and that these 

records are available to 
students and that the students 
may have the right to

records. The types of 
educational records that are 
kept on students at Nor- 
thwestern State University 
are as follows: 

1. Instructors: A record is 
maintained on each student by 
the instructor. Such things as 
reports, etc., are kept by the 
instructor in a Class Record 
Book. The instructor treats 
the materials in the Gass 
Record Book in a confidential 

manner and a student's marks 
in the class can only be 
divulged to the student. At the 
end of the semester, the Gass 
Record Book is turned in to the 
attendance, test grades, 

Registrar's office where it is

academic dean keeps in his 
office the matriculation

as the curricula being 
followed by each student. Only 
material pertaining to a 
student's matriculation is kept

3. That appropriate legal 
action may be taken in ad- 
dition to paying for replacing 
an item if it gets into grand 
theft (anything over $100). 

4. That the appropriate 
Dean be required to remind s- 
tudents and faculty to return 
material by the end of a 
semester on notification of 
dereliction by the library. 

5. That this information be 
given in orientation classes;

HANDBOOK: initially placed 
in the CURRENT SAUCE and 
and placed on signs which are 
to be prominently located in 
strategic places in the library.

who are being terminated 
(resignation or retirement) 
the Library should be part of 
their clearance. 

3. FOR STAFF: Staff 
members taking classes will 
be considered students for the 
purposes of this policy. 

PERSONNEL: On being 
caught, the person should 

have the material taken from 
him or her, the name and 
address taken, and the in- 
cident should be reported to 
Dean Bosarge, who should be 
asked to take the appropriate 
action which may include 
confiscation of library 
privileges and, or refusal to 
pay or return material, the 
filing of criminal charges.

in these records, as well as his 
academic standing. Some 
incidental materials are kept, 
such as newspaper articles, 
honors, a supervising 
teacher's evaluation of a 
student teacher, etc. No one 
has access to these records 
except the Dean or his agent. 
Should a student change 
colleges within the University 
his record is then transferred 
in its entirety to his new Dean. 
These records are unofficial 
and can be reviewed in the 
Academic Dean's office. 
These records are to be kept 
ten years and then destroyed. 

3. Academic Advisors: At 
Northwestern State 
University the academic 
advisor is generally 
designated as the academic 
department head, although 

the academic department 
head may designate one of the 
faculty members within his 
department to act as the 
advisor to the student. If the 
student changes majors, this 
record is transferred to his 
new adviser. The material 
contained in this record is only 
of an academic nature, in- 
dicating the past and present 
matriculation record, his 
current academic status, as 
well as the curriculum in 
which the student is enrolled. 
Only the academic advisor 
has access to this record and it 
can be reviewed by the 
student in the academic ad- 
visor's office. These records 
are unofficial. These records 
are placed in an inactive 
status if the student interrupts 
his education and destroyed in 
ten years after the student 
leaves the University. 

4. The Dean of Student 
Personnel: The Dean of 
Student Personnel maintains 
records with most of the 
personal identifying material 
on a student. The file contains 
the personal data form, as 
well as the student's 
autobiography that he or she 
has written in orientation 
class, his dormitory progress 
reports, housing data, and 
past matriculation records, as 
well as the current curriculum 
in which the student is 
enrolled, test data from the 
American College Testing 
program, and any 
correspondence that may 
have taken place between the 
student and members of his

misleading, or otherwise in 
violation of privacy or other 
rights of students and to 
provide an opportunity for the 
correction or deletion of any 
such inaccurate, misleading 
or otherwise inappropriate 
data contained therein. The 
University will attempt to 
settle disputes with students 
and-or parents regarding the 
content of the student's 
education records through 
informal meetings and 
discussions. In the event these 
informal proceedings do not 
satisfy the student and-or 
parent a more formal 
arrangement for a hearing 
may be necessary. When these 
informal means are not 
satisfactory to the student 
and-or parent or the 
University, these formal 
proceedings will be conducted 
accordingly. On the written 
request of the student and-or 
parent to the University 
concerning the inaccuracy of 
materials contained in the 
student's record, a board 
composed of the Vice 
President of Student Affairs, a 
representative of the Faculty 
Senate, a representative of the

Demon games to be 
broadcast on radio 

NSU football fans across the 
state will be able to tune into 
two different networks to 
follow the Demons during the 
1977 season. 

The NSU Demon Football 
Network, one of the top radio 
sports networks in the state, 
will once again canvas the 
state with live action on both 
home and road games. From 
flagship station KNOC in 
Natchitoches, the network will 
reach all corners of the state. 

In addition to most of the 
stations which carried the 
Demons last year, the network 
has added KSLI-FM in 
Alexandria, a 100,000-watt 
station which is one of the 

most powerful FM stations in 
the entire South. 

As he has for 24 years, and 
the past 21 seasons in a row. 
Norm Fletcher will be the 
play-by-play "Voice of the 
Demons" during the 1977 
season. Roger Willia/ns, a 
former NSU football star, will 
serve as color commentator 
on the network for the second 
consecutive year. 

The radio broadcasts will 
begin 15 minutes prior to 
game time for all 11 contests. 
In addition, the flagship 
station and some stations on 
the network will be carrying a 
pair of special pre-game 

shows starting 25 minutes 
before game time which will 
feature NSU head football 
coach A.L. Williams and 
members of the Demon 
football team. 

An all-new feature this 
season the NSU Football 
Television Network, which 
will feature taped replays of 
NSU road games and, 
possibly, selected home 
games. These broadcasts, the 
first of their kind in the area, 
were originated last year by 
the cable channel operated by 
Westside Baptist Church, and 
WSBC-TV's Channel 9 will be 
the originating station this

following each road game on a 
network of cable channels that 
stretches from Shreveport to 
Baton Rouge. Local viewers 
will be able to see the games 
on Tuesday nights starting at 
7:15 p.m. 

Handling the play-by-play 
for the television network will 
be Jim R. Johnson, NSU's 
assistant director of in- 
formational services and 
public address announcer for 
Demon home games. Serving 
as color man for the broad-

Guam on May 22, 1976 isn't on 
the front pages anymore. But it will be a 
long time before the people of Guam 
forget it. And it will be a long time before 
Red Cross forgets it. Because we were 

there, too. 

Believe it or not, Guam was only one 
of 30,000 disasters in the last 12 
months where we were called on for

The Good Neighbor. 

Wells discovers rare gumi plant 

The discovery of a plant so 
rare that the National Her- 
barium in Washington, D.C. 
did not have a speciman of it 
has been made by a staff 
member at Northwestern 
State University. 

Mrs. Carol Wells, an 
assistant in the archives 
division at Northwestern, 
made the discovery recently 
after she was given berries 
from one of the plants and 
began to inquire about it 
locally and with noted 

"I made jam from the 
berries given to me in late 
May by Mrs. Bill Bade of 
Coushatta, who said they were 
'goomey" berries," Mrs. 

Wells said. 

Eventually, through her 
research, she learned that the 
correct spelling of the com- 
mon name is gumi, and she 
discovered that the proper 
botannical name for the plant 
is Elaneagmus Multiflora. 

Bade, who is president of 
the Louisiana Folklife Society, 
said he knows of only four of 
the plants, and all are located 
in or near Natchitoches. One 
plant belongs to Mrs. Rosalie 
Aaron of Natchitoches, who 
said her six-year-old shrub is 
derived from one in Minden. 

Mrs. Bade, a dietitian who 
holds two degrees from North- 
western, said the jelly made 
from gumi berries is of a clear 
red color pnri has a tart taste. 

She made several jars of the 
jelly this spring from berries 
given to her. 

Local residents asked by 
Mrs. Wells about the plant and 
its berries knew little about it. 
She found no one in Louisiana 
who could positively identify 
the plant, which is believed to 
grow into a small tree about 20 
feet tall. 

Mrs. Wells said Jessie 
Johnson, curator of Briarwood 
Nature Preserve near Saline, 
recognized the plant as a 
member of the Elaeagnus 
family, but she was uncertain 
about the species. 

Finally in a recent letter 
from Miss Elizabeth 
Lawrence, a noted botanist 

and author from ftj. 
Carolina who was a frten^j 
the late Caroline Dorrt^ 
creator of Briarwood 
species was identified. 

Miss Lawrence had gi 
small branch, supplied 
by Mrs. Wells, from the 
of Mrs. Rosalie Aaron 
National Herbarium 
Frederick Meyer, taxonoi 
with the Herbarium, repoi 
that it was the first spec: 
of the plant received 
Herbarium. He requej 
samples of next sea 
blossoms and fruit. 

The small branch 
lodged in the Herbarj 
carries the name of Mrs 
as the collector.

STADIUM— After two years of 
construction and five years of 
planning Turpin Stadium was 
dedicated during the NSU- 

University of Texas Arlington game. 
The structure, which seats 16,000 
people, is finished except for final 
touch up work. 

Harry H. "Rags" Turpin 
served for 30 years on the NSU 
coaching staff and held a 23- 
year tenure as head football 
coach, the longest of any head 
coach in the 92-year history of 
the university. 

A native of Tensas Parish, 
Turpin moved to Natchitoches 
as a youngster and was a 
standout athlete at Natchito- 
ches High School and Nor- 
thwestern before becoming an 
assistant coach at Nor- 
thwestern in 1926. 

Turpin became head foot- 
ball coach at NSU in 1934 and 
remained in the post until his 
retirement in 1956. During his 
coaching career, Turpin 
compiled a record of 99 wins, 
90 losses and 12 ties for a 
winning percentage of .524. 
His 1939 team was one of only 
two undefeated teams in 
Demon football history and is 
generally regarded as one of 
the powerhouses in NSU 
football annals. 

The 1939 team won 11 
straight contests and held 
eight of its opponents 
scoreless. Turpin's team 
yielded only 18 points that 
season while winning the 
Louisiana Intercollegiate 
Conference and the Southern 
Intercollegiate Athletic 
Association Championships. 

Turpin was instrumental in 
the establishment of the Gulf 
States Conference and served

The schedule opens Wed-

Demons travel to Shreveport 
to meet Centenary in a dual 
meet. The Demon runners 
have a dual meet in Monroe 
with Northeast on Sept. 16 
before the first big event of the 
fall, the Harding-Bison In- 
vitational in Searcy, Ark., on 
Sept. 24. 

NSU will also run in the 
Arlington Invitational in 
Arlington, Tex., on Oct. 7 and 
in the USL Invitational on Oct. 
29 before the NCAA District 
HI Championships set for 
Furman, S.C., on Nov. 12. 

Only one regular, 
sophomore Windell Bonner of 
Minden, is expected to be 
among the front runners of 
this years squad. A trio of 
freshmen, Billy Green of 
Marshall, Tex., Ricky Crut- 
cher of Pearl, Miss., and 
Kelvin Stewart of Opelousas, 
will be among the standouts.. 

appointments came from NSU 
athletic director George 
Doherty and head football 
coach A. L. Williams. 

Yates, an assistant football 
coach at Bolton High School in 
Alexandria for the past six 
years, helped produce four 
league championships for the 
Bears in District 3-AAA. Yates 
also served as an assistant 
coach and defensive coor- 
dinator at Bossier High School 
for two years. He came to 
Bossier from his native 
Pineville High School where 
he was head football and 
basketball coach. 

"We feel that Corky will add 
a great deal to our staff," said 
Williams. "He has experience 
in all phases of football and 
knows the game from top to 
bottom. We are extremely 
fortunate to have such an 
experienced coach with us this 

Cannon, the second ap- 
pointee, was a star quar- 
terback at Delta State 
University. A native of 
Opelousas, Cannon was a 
three year letterman for the 
Statesmen and had his best 
season as a sophomore when 
he connected on 47 of 94 throws 
for 763 yards and seven touch- 

"Tommy has a tremendous 
knowledge of the game both on 
the high school and collegiate 
levels," said Williams," and 
he should help bring a new 
look to our staff." 

Cannon comes to NSU from 
Marksville High School where 
he served as an assistant 
coach in charge of offensive 
and defensive backs for three 
years. He will be aiding with 
receivers, especially the tight 
ends, during his time as a 
graduate assistant. 


John Russell, a two-time 
All-District performer for 
Spencer High School's track 
and field squad in Columbus, 
Ga., has signed to continue his 
track career with NSU. 

Demon track coach Jerry 
Dyes, who announced the 
signing this week, said that 
Russell will help his squad 
both in the distances runs and 
in cross country. "John has a 
great deal of natural running 
ability," Dyes said, "and 
we're fortunate that his family 
has come to the area." 

LTC. and Mrs. Buck L. 
Russell recently moved to 
Natchitoches after the elder 
Russell had retired from the 
armed forces. 

Russell, a 5-foot-6 %, 130 
pounder, was twice his 
district's top cross country 
runner and represented 
Spencer High twice at the 
state cross country meet. He 
was also an All-District 
performer in track and field, 
during which time he helped 
lead his team to a third-place 
finish in district competition. 

His best efforts were 4:30 in 
the mile, 9:53 in the two-mile, 
a 15:33 clocking in three-mile 
cross country and a 26:28 time 
in five-mile cross country. 

A three year letterman for 
the squad of coach James E. 
Reese, the 18-year old Russell 
plans to major in physical 
education. He is the 15th track 
and field performer signed by 
Dyes this season.

Kozak receives 



The Department of Music 
has presented its 
Distinguished Music Award of 
1977 to Edward J. Kozak Sr. of 

Music department chair- 
man Dr. J. Robert Smith said 
Kozak was chosen as the 
award's recipient because of 
his "support of the music 
program at Northwestern, his 
professional and educational 
accomplishments and his 
dedication to the highest 
standards in music." 

Kozak, a former 
professional cornet and 
trumpet player in Chicago 
during the "Big Band" era, 
received the award in 
recognition of his outstanding 
achievements as a 
professional musician and 
teacher and as a proponent of 
the highest standards of 
musical excellence. 

When Kozak was 19, he 
toured the country for 20 
weeks as first chair cornet 
player with the Bohumir Kryl 
concert band. One year later 
he became the youngest 
trumpet player to perform in a 
downtown theatre in Chicago. 

As a theatre musician for 
the Palace Theatre Ohrpheum 
in Chicago, Kozak played for 
such big name entertainers as 
Bob Hope and Jack Benny. 

Kozak's career as a 
professional musician also 
included performances with 
the Chicago Band, American 
Legion Band and the Board of 
Trade Post Band under Col. 
Armin F. Hand. 

He spent a short time with 
American bandmaster and 
composer John Philip Sousa's 
concert band. 

Dr. Albert Ellis 
to lecture 
at workshop

program, which is scheduled 
for Sept. 24-25 in the Teacher 
Education Center. 

Dr. Donald Gates, chairman 
of the Department of 
Behavioral Sciences said the 
rational-emotive therapy 
"constitutes an approach that 
emphasizes people's 
responsibility for creating 
their own upsetting emotion, 
and, hence their unusual 
capacities to recondition 
themselves and choose 
relatively problem-free, 
emotionally satisfying lives." 

Students, educators, 
counselors, psychologists, 
psychiatrists and sociologists 
are being invited to par- 
ticipate in the program, which 
will include lectures, question 
and answer sessions and 

Dr. Albert Ellis, considered 
the nation's leading authority 
on rational-emotive therapy, 
will serve as special lecturer 
for the program. Ellis is 
executive director of the In- 
stitute for Rational Living, 
Inc., and of its training and 
research affiliate, The In- 
stitute for Advanced Study in 
Rational Psychotherapy in 
New York City.

theory and techniques of 
rational-emotive therapy to 
marriage and family coun-

The three candidates selected were 
Dr. Rene Bienvenu, Dr. C. B. "Lum" 
Ellis, and Dr. Richard Galloway. 
Walker said further discussion ensued, 
but that no formal action was taken at 
that meeting to limit the SGA's support 
to one candidate. 

(A formal decision was made by the 
Senate last night, but it was not 
available at the time this paper went to 

Walker commented, "The SGA was 
meeting to listen to the candidates and 
whoever wanted to come was 
welcomed, whoever wanted to express 
their views to one of their elected of- 
ficials could do so, but that no formal 
action was taken. The SGA, amongst 
themselves, discussed candidate 

"The SGA saw six qualified can- 
didates and were impressed by all and 
if we did not see a president in them we 
did see a vice president in them," he 
further stated. 

As each candidate left the Senate's 
presence, he was asked how he felt 
about having the opportunity of ad- 
dressing the SGA and possibility of 
obtaining their support. Their replies 
were as follows: 

Dr. Alost: "I believe that whatever is

good people have applied and the Board 
of Trustees should think very carefully 
before making a decision." 

Dr. Anders: "Presidential can- 
didates should speak to any group that 
is willing to listen. The main thrust I 
would make would be in academics." 

Dr. Bienvenu: "I am extremely 
pleased that students are demon- 
strating concern to meet with ap- 
plicants and discuss their viewpoints." 

Dr. Ellis: "I'm always happy to tell 
how I feel. The Board of Trustees want 
to hear from the students." 

Dr. Galloway: (The meeting) "gives 
the student body an opportunity to get 
familiar with the candidates, but this 
method also puts the candidates on the 
spot. Certain subjects are touchy, such 
as beer on campus." 

Dr. Reed: "This is a good 
representation of the students which 
should be commended." 

The other candidates who have ap- 
plied for the position are Drs. C. R.

made Thursday, Sept. 15, at a meeting 
of the Board of Trustees for State

Dr. Bill Junkin, executive director of 
the board. 

During the morning session, each 
candidate may have a spokesman 
speak on his behalf (10 minute time 
limit). During the afternoon executive 
session the Board will conduct 20 min- 
ute interviews with each candidate. 

Dr. Junkin said the decision of the 
Board will be announced when the 
regular session reconvenes that 

The families of NSU students will be 
honored Sept. 17 when the university 
observes Family Night at the new 
Harry "Rags" Turpin Football 

The special observance, which is 
being coordinated by Dr. Richard 
Galloway, is being conducted this year 
in conjunction with the NSU-Arkansas 
State football game. 

Families of students will be admitted 
to the football game as guests of the 
university. The students' families must 
obtain tickets at a reception scheduled 
from 4 p. m. to 5:30 p. m. in the Student 
Union Ballroom. 

The program for family night begins 
at 1 p. m. with open house at student 
residence halls and with the first of 
several guided bus tours of the 
university campus. Tours will originate 
from the Student Union. 

Speaking at the afternoon reception 
will be NSU president Dr. Arnold R. 
Kilpa trick and head football coach A. L. 
Williams. Administrators and faculty 
members will also attend the event to 
visit with the families of students. The 
Entertainers of NSU will provide en- 
tertainment for the reception. 

Students and their families will enjoy 
an evening meal in Iberville Dining 
Hall from 4:30p.m. to 6:30 p.m. before 
attending the football game. 

"Family Night is our way of ex- 
pressing our appreciation to the 
families of our students for their con- 
tinuing support of Northwestern," said 
Galloway. "It is an enriching ex- 
perience to bring the families together 
on the campus, and we are proud that 
the program has continued to grow 
through the years." 

The Office of External Affairs is 
planning and coordinating many 
programs and activities for the fall 
semester, according to Dr. C. B. 
"Lum" Ellis, assistant to the president 
and director of external affairs, in 
addition to "Family Night." 

"Something Old ... Something New: 
Life and Times at NSU," is the theme 
for this year's Homecoming, which 
isset for Oct. 1. Dr. Ellis stressed that 
Homecoming is for currently enrolled 
NSU students as well as NSU alumni, 
and he encouraged everyone to par- 
ticipate in the many events scheduled 
for Homecoming day. 

Following the Homecoming parade 
which will begin at 11 a. m. tours and 
open house will be held on campus 
throughout the afternoon. 

A highlight of the NSU-Northeast 
game that night will be the presentation 
of the 1977 Homecoming Court. Co- 
Chairmen of the Homecoming Com- 
mittee this year are Judith Morgan and 
Doug Norris. 

Dr. Ellis explained that his office is 
responsible for coordinating all alumni 
activities during the semester. Parties 
for alumni are held after each home 
game and following many out-of-town 

In January NSU alumni will go on a 
ski trip for the second consecutive year. 
Students are also invited to make this 
trip and additional information can be 
obtained in the External Affairs Office. 

Dr. Ellis stated that this has already 
been a busy semester for him and his 
staff. External Affairs coordinated 

"Demon Day" activities held on August 
27, and also worked in conjunction with 
the Athletic Council on the dedication of 
the new stadium on Sept. 3. 

According to Dr. Ellis, President 
Arnold Kilpatrick established the Of- 
fice of External Affairs four years ago 
to coordinate the public relations of- 
fices of NSU. 

The offices under the supervision of 
External Affairs include Student' 
Recruiting, Alumni Services, the NSU 
Foundation, and legislative and 
community affairs. 

"We have found that by combining 
these related offices, we can do a better 
job for less money," stated Dr. Ellis. 

Dr. Ellis believes the future is bright 
for NSU. He cited the new athletic 
facilities, the recreational complex, 
and "a growing commitment to 
academic excellence which is up to the 
faculty" as reasons for the increased 
freshmen enrollment at NSU for the 
past two years. 

"Students 17 and 18 years old want to 
go to a school which has pride and 
spirit," Dr. Ellis commented. "The 
biggest challenge here at NSU is one of 
attitude among all of us." 

Meeting delays 
appointment letters 

Letters of Appointment for faculty 
members will not be issued until after 
the meeting of the Board of Trustees on 
Sept. 29 and 30, according to President 
Arnold Kilpatrick. 

The letters are, as stated by one 
faculty member, a "contract" in- 
cluding the status and salary of 12 
month employees. Kilpatrick said 
however, that the letters should not be 
viewed as a contract in the technical 


In past years the letters were issued 
in August. Due to the fact that the 
Board of Trustees will not meet to 
approve the university budget until the 
end of September, the Letters of Ap- 
pointment will be issued about one 
month late. 

Kilpatrick added that the raise 
provided by the special legislature will 
not be included in the letters.

The SGA has also passed a resolution

C*f\^GL l^r*r»n lack of communication results 

S LOmer. - n i n f r i n g eme nt of students' rights 

Many issues, procedural 
discrepancies, and 
technicalities could be raised 
:V ; about the action taken by the 
SGA Monday and Wednesday- 
nights of last week. But, that is 
not the purpose of this 
editorial. The purpose is to 
j^jjraise issue with the lack of 
EssSbtnmunication between the 
J^jaembers of the SGA, and 
""""Tjetween the SGA and the 
student body they represent. 
This lack of communication is 
fast leading to infringement

^^And, what rights do students 
have to infringe on the rights 
v:i©? their fellow students? 

Ad equate communication 
laves from the SGA are not 
"open to the student body and 
Ihts serious deficiency needs 
."c&j- be rectified as was 
evidenced by last week's 

During the course of the 
SGA meeting Monday night, a 
closed session of the Senate 
was held and a vote was taken 
that the SGA support one of 
the presidential candidates in 
his bid for the office. 

When later questioning 
several senators about what 
was being termed at the time 
a "special meeting of the 
Senate" (later this editor was 
informed that the SGA met as 
an informal discussion 
group), information was 
obtained that the meeting 
would be closed to the public. 

Upon confronting John 
McKellar, the SGA treasurer, 
with this information on 
Wednesday, the misun- 
derstanding was cleared up. 
McKellar stated that the 
meeting would be open but the 
discussion of candidate 
qualifications and the decision 

would be closed. This in- 
formation was later verified 
by David Walker, SGA 

Later Wedensday afternoon, 
it became evident that not all 
the SGA members had the 
same information concerning 
the meeting time, etc. It 
seems that the memorandum 
sent to all the Senators by 
Walker had not been received. 
No public notification of the 
meeting was posted on the 
SGA bulletin board for them to 
refer to either. 

The candidates who spoke 
before the SGA were working 
on the assumption gleaned 
from what had obviously been 
told them - the the SGA 
would decide whom to back 
Wednesday night. 

It also came to the attention 
of this editor that manv

students were under the 
mistaken impression that this 
was a closed meeting and they 
could not attend. 

How could they have known 
differently'? Though Walker 
has stated "whoever wanted 
to come was welcomed; 
whoever wanted to express 
their views to one of their 
elected officials could do so;" 
no notice was posted 
anywhere about the Wed- 
nesday meeting. No signs 
were placed in prominent 
places; no publicity what- 
soever was released. 

The NSU grapevine would 
have been the only way for 
most students to have found 
out about the meeting since 
the radio station KNWD was 
not broadcasting as yet and 
the CURRENT SAUCE would 
not be out until today. 

Now, it is understandable 
that the Senate was working 
on a tight time schedule; but, 
from the moment the decision 
was made, plans should have 
been made to publicize the 

SGA at a glan_£f_ 

meeting. Instead, it became 
cloaked in mystery and 

It was reported by a reliable 
source that the SGA made a 
decision to support formally 
one particular candidate for 
president of this university 
and to speak for him before 
the Board of Trustees. They 
took this action as 
representatives of the student 
body and will probably 
represent their decision to the 
Board of Trustees as being re- 
presentative of the student 
body's wishes. But, the 
student body was not polled in 
any way to obtain their 
opinion, nor were they 
coherently or correctly in- 
formed of the opportunity the 
SGA was providing in having 
the candidates come and 

Until the SGA is truly- 
representative of the student 
body as a whole they should 
refrain from making such 
decisions as were made within 
the past week and they should 

be very careful in their claims 
to be elected officials by the 
student body to represent 
them. Even city governments 
hold referendums to test the 
public's stand on an issue 
before taking a representative 

Of course, issue could be 
taken with the previous 
statement in that the Con- 
stitution of the SGA can be 
interpreted to give the Senate 
the power to make such a 
decision, but once more 
semantics and interpretation 
come into play. 

The idea of the SGA had to 
bring the candidates in and 
hear them speak was a 
commendable one, but the 
way in which they pursued 
their goal was slipshod and 
highhanded to say the least. 

Students do have a right to 
at least voice their opinions to 
their elected leaders; they 
also have the right to be 
properly informed of op- 
portunities which would 
enable them to more 

knowledgeably voice that 
opinion so it will be counted. 

The SGA should stand 
warned that further in- 
fringement of students rights 
will be neither tolerated nor 
condoned. Several of their 
actions last week came close 
to breaking Act No. 665, 
commonly known in this state 
as the Sunshine Laws. This 
act, passed in 1976, deals with 
open and closed meetings and 
the type of action which may- 
be taken behind closed doors. 
The act is also referred to as 
the Freedom of Information 
Act and is most commonly 
applied to public bodies which 
attempt to meet in private 
session to make decisions to 
the exclusion of the general 
public. The act states that "no 
binding or final action" may 

be taken behind closed doors 
As was earlier stated, a lack 
of communication in and from 
the SGA exists and this jj 
probably the only factor which 
keeps this editor from calling 
to public attention the specific 
violations of this act by the 

Just a word of caution ~, 
students have a need and right 
to know and any action taken 
by the SGA or any other body 
to prevent them from ob- 
taining this knowledge win 
result in severe reprimanding 
not only by this publication bui 
also by the students. 

Develop some functioning 
efficient line of commun 
ication with the student body if 
you, as a group, truly desire tr> 
be representative of the> 
student body.

Delta Zeta 

The sisters of Delta Zeta 
sorority would like to extend a 
hearty "welcome" to all NSU 
students. We have been back 
on campus since August 18. 
We returned at this time for a 
pre-rush workshop. We 
worked diligently and when 
rush began on August 23 we 
were well prepared for it. 

Rush 1977 was a very ex- 
citing and successful time for 
the DZ's. Parties, rushing, 
Greek silence, voting and 
finally came Saturday mor- 
ning and accepting of bids. By 
noon most of our new sisters 
were home. We had a bar- 
beque at the DZ lodge which 
was followed by a swimming 
party that afternoon. 

Formal pledging was held 
Sunday August 28. The 
ceremonies were followed by 
church services at the First 
Baptist Church here in Nat- 
chitoches. The DZ's spent 
Sunday afternoon assisting 
McDonald's in the Muscular 
Dystrophy drive. Our girls

Our Congratulations are 
extended to other Greeks for a 
great rush session. It is our 
hope that all sororities and 
fraternities will join together 
to promote good Greek 
relations here on campus and 
that the ideals of sister and 
brotherhood not only exist 
within each house, but within 
the entire system. 

DZ held a chapter exchange 
with the brothers of Sigma 
Tau Gamma last Friday 
night. We all had a great time. 

Congratulations to the NSU 
Demons on a Great Victory 
Saturday, Sept. 3 against 
UTA. We would like to wish 
you a very safe and successful 
season. We will be pulling for 

Looking into the near 
future: we will soon begin

football; DZ's will participate 
with the brothers of Kappa

mas Festival; initiation, and a 
pre-game Party this coming 
Friday night. 

A very special thank you is 
extended toScott Wise our 1977

Saturday night, September 
3, the Brothers and all Pledges 
actively participated at the

according to Brother Mark 
Manuel, who helped lead the 
Sig cheering squad, "I believe 
the Fraternity maintained the 
highest form of genuine spirit 
by cheering for the team 
throughout the entire game 
and not just the parts where 
we were ahead." The Kappa 
Sigs added a special note the 
contest by enthusiastically 
supporting Brothers Jack 
Brittain and Allison Scott and 
Pledge Bobby Armour, who 
are members of the Demon 
Team. The Victory Dance was

with the Sisters and Pledges 
from Sigma Kappa Sorority

Fellow Beer Persons. 

Life is full of unanswered questions such as: Is there intelligent life 
elsewhere in the universe? And if so. do they wear socks? 

In beer, however, there are no unanswered questions. Because there 
is only one word for beer, and you know it. 


Therefore, as your Dean of Beer. I suggest you research 
the essential lightness of the word for yourself at your next 
social function. Or even your next antisocial function. 

And please note: The recommended source 
material for locating the word can be found in any 
phone booth. In other words, look in the Yellow 
Pages. Under "Beer!' 
Thank you.

Local and state elected 
officials attended the 
ceremonies formally opening 
the armory, which National 
ROTC officials consider one of 
the most modern military 
education facilities in the 

Master of ceremonies for 
the dedication program was 
Lt. Col. Walter B. Harris Jr.,

Capt. Robinson in the un- 

Noe began his close 
relationship with NSU in 1969 
when he observed a per- 
formance by the Black 
Knights precision drill team. 
Impressed by their per- 
formance, he began to 
financially sponsor the unit in 
national competition. 

The James A. Noe Military 
Science Building, which until 
1974 was known as North Hall 
dormitory for men, has un- 
dergone extensive renovation 
and is now one of the region's 
most functional ROTC 

The two-story military 

science building was officially 
named earlier this year in 
memory of Noe, a former 
governor of Louisiana who 
died in October of 1976. Noe 
enjoyed for more than a 
decade, a close relationship 
with NSU and its ROTC Cadet 
Corps and was a continuous 
financial supporter of ROTC 

The new armory contains 
offices for each army officer, 
three large classrooms, 
supply and arms rooms, of- 
fices for secretaries, a 
reference library, two 
overnight quarters for 
visitors, study areas and 
separate offices for the ROTC 
corps commanders of the drill 

Other features of the ar- 
mory include a 10-point indoor 
22-caliber rifle range, rap- 
peling tower, leader reaction 
course, physical training site 
and two practice surfaces 
used by the Black Knights and 
Velvet Knights. 

An open house and reception 
followed the dedication 
ceremonies, which included 
the unveiling of a plaque to 
commemorate the event.

AMS, AWS announce merger/ 
present constitution for approval 

The executive councils of 
AMS and AWS have proposed 
merging the two organizations 
into a Resident Students 
Association (RSA). The 
proposed organization will be 
more effective in resolving 
student concerns and 
providing more services, 
according to Steve McLeod, 
vice president of AMS. 

Also involved in the con- 
stitutional revision is an in- 
crease from $1 to $2 in the 
membership fee. These fees 
have been collected at the 
beginning of a semester when 
a student checks into the 
dormitory. The fees have been 
utilized to show films in the 
dormitories, to stage dorm 
parties, tournaments, to 
provide athletic and other 
equipment needed in each 
dorm. The AWS bridal show 
and the fashion show are 
funded with these fees. 

The suggested fee increase, 
according to McLeod, will not 
only enable the organizations 
to maintain the services they 
render but will also enable 
them to provide additional 
services in the future. 

"We believe the residence 
hall dollar provides more tan- 
gible return than any other 
organizational dollar spent on 
campus," McLeod com-

Fumbles, Bearcat defense defeat Demons 

t NSU demons suffered 
I first loss of the 1977 
jaigr. last Saturday night 
i hands of the University 
pcinnati by a 41-0 tally, 
f Demons, who won their 
in opener against the 
ersity of Texas- 
gton, lost five fumbles 
jfour of them resulting in 
finnati score. 
L NSU offense was 
jated time after time by 

the Bearcats nationally 
ranked defense. 

The first bad break came in 
the Demons second series 
from scrimmage when a 
Philibert pass was intercepted 
by Marcellus Greene. Seven 
plays later Cincinnati had 
their first score of the ball 
game. It would be the first of 
many of NSU mistakes. 

Just two minutes later 
Bearcat linebacker Mile 

Woods recovered Joe 
Delaney's fumble and set up a 
25-yard touchdown drive. 

To end the first quarter 
quarterback Kenny Philibert 
was sacked for a nine yard 
loss and lost the ball. Eight 
plays later Cincinnati was 
back on the boards with a TD 
by Jim Daley. 

Soon afterwards a 26-yard 
punt return set the 'Cats in

Top golfers sign 

NSU golf coach Dr. Der- 
wood Duke has announced the 
signing of three top high 
school and junior college 
athletes to golf scholarships 
for the 1977-78 season. 

Signing golf pacts were 
David Goldstein of Huntsville, 
Ala., Tom Brassell of Fort 
Walton Beach, Fla., and Gary 
West of Niceville, Fla , 

"We are very fortunate to 
have signed three golfers of 
their ability all at once," said 
Duke. "I feel that they can 
join with our older kids to help 
us build a solid foundation for 
the program." 

Goldstein graduated from 
Grissom High School in 
Huntsville, the same high 
school that provided NSU with 

standout basketball guard 
Dan Bell. The 18-year-old 
finished 12th in this year's 
prestigious Future Masters 
Golf Tournament held in 
Augusta, Ga. 

Brassell won honors as Fort 
Walton Beach High School's 
Most Valuable Golfer in his 
junior and senior years. He 
played in the No. 2 position for 
the past two years on the 
powerful Pensacola Junior 
College squad and compiled a 
74.4 stroke average on some of 
Florida's finest courses. 

This summer, Brassell 
competed in the U.S. Amateur 
Championships as well as the 
American Amateur Classic 
and the Western Amateur. He 
won the state Jaycee Junior 
title and finished second in the 

Miracle Strip Junior Cham- 

West carded a solid 72.0 
stroke average as the No. 1 pl- 
ayer on Niceville High 
School's squad during his 
senior year. He had tran- 
sferred there from Biloxi, 
Miss., where he was the 
team's No. 2 player with a 75.0 
average. Last season, West 
played for Alex City Junior 
College in Alex City, 
Alabama, and helped his team 
finish fifth in the nation among 
all junior colleges. 

Duke has announced that 
the Demon golfers will be 
taking part in tournaments at 
La. Tech, Northeast La., 
Centenary and Houston during 
the fall semester.

Dr. Bonnette 
'Screening' article 

Dr. Allen R. Bonnette, 
professor of health, physical 
education and recreation at 
Northwestern State 
University, has published an 
article in the September issue 
of the national publication 

The article, entitled 
"screening" details the 
various techniques and 
methods of basketball 
screening, and includes 
several diagrams which 
demonstrate the techniques. 
based in Evanston, 111., and 
devoted primarily to in- 
formation about athletic 
coaching and training, is in its 
58th year of publication. 

Screening in Basketball 
implies taking an offensive 
position so as to impede the 
progress of a defensive 
player. Bonnette says in the 
article that an inability to 
screen properly, the un- 
willingness to set the screen, 
the teammate who receives 
the screen too soon and setting 
the screen too soon or too late 
are all the direct result of 
exceptionally poor coaching. 

Bonnette in the article 
describes the art of screening 
by comparing it to the in- 
tricacies of the workings of a 
clock, saying that the 
mechanics must be precisely 
executed in order for the 
screen to become a strategic 
offensive move. 

Bonnette received his 
bachelors degree from Nor- 
thwestern in 1951 and earned a 
masters degree in educational 
administration in 1958. Later 
he received his Ed. D. Degree 
from LSU in 1968. 

Bonnette's coaching ex- 
perience includes eight years 
in state high schools and three 
years as an assistant 
basketball coach at LSU. He 
began his coaching career at 
Robeline High School in 1952- 
53, where he compiled a 72-12 
overall record and won the 
district championship. 

He moved to Neville High 
School in Monroe in 1953-54 
and proceeded to win the 
North La. Championship in 
leading his team to an out- 
standing 41-2 record before 
moving to Springhill High 
School at the end of that 

At Springhill, Bonnette won 
two district championships

Bienvenu named next NSU president 

Dr. Rene J. Bienvenu, Jr., a former 
NSU dean of the College of Science and

of Northwestern Thursday by the State 
Board of Trustees. 

Bienvenu, 54, is assistant dean of the 
School of Allied Health at the LSU 
Medical Center in Shreveport, a 
position he took this year after serving 
27 years at NSU. 

Gordon Flory, who was hospitalized

interviews, returned to the meeting 
that afternoon and moved that Bien- 
venu be appointed president. C. M. 
Miller, Senior seconded the motion and 
asked that the board make the decision 
unanimous, which it proceeded to do. 

After the decision was announced,

"Seldom have I seen a Frenchman 
speechless." He went on to say, "I will 
do everything within my power to make 
Northwestern a great university. I am 
looking forward to working with

Sen. Peltier went on to state that 
there is a "hope that everybody works 
together and puts some more lifeblood 
in Northwestern. 

After the meeting was adjourned, Dr. 
Bienvenu said, "I look forward with 
great anticipation to working with 
students to develop a university which 
will meet their needs and pleasures. All 
I w ant from students is that w hen they 
see something they don't like, come see

support of Dr. Bienvenu, said, "I 
couldn't be more pleased with the

that we couldn't go with all of them. We 
took a chance on going w ith the most

Lisa Monteverde, president of the

to the Board of Trustees was very 
helpful in getting the SGA's point

the Board but no vote.) Walker highly

character in the aspect that it helps the 
girl learn to communicate with others, 
work with others, and better un- 
derstand what she really wants to 
achieve from being in a pageant," 

commented NSU contestant Suzanne 
Johnson, a senior psychology and 
zoology major. Ms. Johnson will sing a

Readers comment 

On September 12, 1977 The 
Student Government 
Association of Northwestern 
took a definitive stand on a 
major issue at NSU. The 
Senate voted (13-1, with 1 
absent) to support Dr. Rene 
Bienvenu in his bid for the 
presidency of Northwestern. 

For the first time in several 
years, this organization has 
demonstrated initiative and 
unity, far surpassing that 
exhibited over the past two 
years. It took courage and 
determination on the part of 
each senator to stand up and 
be counted. For this the 
Student Government 
Association is to be com- 

Their action marks the end 
to the wishy-washy trend the 
SGA has followed in the past. 
Too much needs to be ac- 
complished at NSU, and ef- 
fective leadership is 
necessary if anything is to be 

Every year, the SGA gets 
behind something important 
to students, such as beer on 
campus or Mardi Gras 
holidays. They tend to work 
together effectively until an 
obstacle is placed in their path 
and then they become 
despondent and discouraged, 
and that tends to mark the end 
of their unity. 

Let's hope that this year's 
SGA will move on to more 
important issues and ac- 
complish bigger and better 
things for the good of the 
students and Northwestern. 

In the near future, with the 
formation of effective commi- 
ttee structures, the SGA will 
once more gain the reputation 
for serving the student body in 
the students' best interests.

Dear Editor: 

To the students, staff and 
faculty of NSU: 

Effective September 17, 
1977, I will be taking a one 
year leave of absence from 
Northwestern to begin doc- 
toral work at Florida State 

During the past seven years, 
it has been my pleasure to 
serve Northwestern in various 
capacities in Student Affairs. 
I have had the opportunity to 
be associated with some very 
fine people in the form of the 
students, staff and faculty of 
Northwestern State 
University. Those 
associations have rewarded 
me in terms of personal 
friendships and meaningful 
involvements with the 
developments of students and 
various University projects. 

I therefore wish to take this 
opportunity to thank each of 
you who have in any way 
helped or worked with me, or 
perhaps in some way allowed 
me to work with you, at any 
time during the past seven 
years. I have certainly en- 
joyed and will treasure all the 
positive contacts and in- 
volvements you have afforded

thwestern Student Body for 
the high degree of spirit and 
enthusiasm exhibited at the 
NSU vs. Arlington football 
game. Despite the fact that 
the game was played on a 
holiday weekend, a majority 
of the student body remained 
on campus to support the 
Demons. This was, without 
question, the most en- 
thusiastic display of spirit, 
excitement, and loyalty 
displayed on this campus in 
many years. 

Members of the Student 
Body Governing Association, 
Cheerleaders, Band and other 
student organizations, are 
also to be commended for the 
outstanding leadership 
displayed both prior to the 
game, as well as throughout 
the contest. The enthusiasm 
and excitement displayed as 
support of the Demons con- 
tributed greatly to the quality 
of play on the field. Such spirit 
is contagious and good for all 

This promises to be an 
outstanding year for Nor- 
thwestern, not only in 
athletics, but in other areas of 
student and faculty life. I know 
that the student body and 
student leaders will continue 
to provide the support and 
encouragement necessary to 
continue our move to ex- 
cellence in all areas. 

Again, my sincere thanks to 
all the student body for their 
encouragement and support of 

Sincerely yours, 
Dan B. Carr

Dear Editor: 

I could let my personal 
feelings enter into the mood of 
this letter, but I am going to 
try to hold it to basic facts. In 
reply to your editorial con- 
cerning SGA in the Sept. 13 
issue I would like to set the 
record straight concerning the 
publicity of the controversial 
yet informal meeting of SGA 
on Sept. 7. I tried PER- 
SONALLY to publicize that to 
the best of my ability. I called 
who referred me to the NSU 
News Bureau; I called the 
News Bureau who said there 
was nothing they could do 
until after the meeting, — to 
"call them Thursday mor- 
ning." The department that 
prints posters for us was at the 
time looking for someone who 
knew how to operate the 
machine and there was no one 
who could make posters for 
us. As you know CURRENT 
SAUCE couldn't publicize it 
unless you had decided to hold 
the presses until after our 
Monday meeting, which we 
both realize was impossible, 
and finally KNWD wasn't on 
the air yet. What more could 
you ask? 

Academics should be the 
major priority of this campus, 
but when campus leaders such 
as yourself expect 
organizations to become 
priority, it is, in my opinion, 
time to reevaluate that 

I did what I thought was 
needed, and the SGA seemed 
satisfied; it's a shame I didn't 
meet up to your standards, but 
then, I really don't know if 
that is possible. 

Debbie Page 
SGA Secretary 

in its entirety, I will have it 
broadcasted over KNWD and 
copies distributed around 

Thank You, 
Jamie Sanders 

Dearest Co: 

I could not believe what I 
read in the so-called "Co's 
Corner" section of the 
editorial page. It was the most 
misleading piece of jour- 
nalism that I have read since 
the United State presidential 
elections. I want to invite the 
readers to refer back to the 
September 13th issue of the 
proceed to dessect your ac- 
cumulation of garbage. 

From the general outline of 
your editorial, it seems you 
had many purposes for the 
article, including that of 
taking out personal 
grievances against SGA for 
inviting you out of an informal 
meeting since we did not 
particularly desire your 
presence. You mentioned 
something about "in- 
fringement by the SGA of 
students' rights." For one 
thing, my dear, I did not want 
you present because from 
prior experience, you are the 
most talkative grape on the 
grapevine. Nothing was said 
during that closed meeting 
that could be considered 
derogatory towards any of the 
candidates, but I am sure, 
through the grapevine, that 
comments could be 
"editorialized." Catch my 
drift? Isn't misquoting 
someone an infringement? 

''Adequate com- 
munication..." Co, the SGA 
senators and officers are the 
lines of communication to the 
student body since we are 
their representatives. If that 
line is broken, then those 
responsible should be 
removed (including editors). 
Those senators and officers 
present at the Wednesday 
night session represented the 
student body worthily— due to 
the fact that we listened to the 
popular opinions of those we 
came in contact with. 

The reason for the closed 
meeting Monday night was to 
protect the interests of one of 
the candidate's son, who was 
present at the general 
meeting. It was not breaking 
any rules, since no one was 
bound by any action. 

In your own works, "The 
misunderstanding was 
cleared up." 

I have enclosed a letter sent 
to all officers and senators 
informing us of the meeting 
Wednesday night. Yes, there 
was no "public notification" 
on the SGA bulletin board. 
(There was a flyer announcing 
the movie "The Sting" which 
falls under your committee, 
that was posted illegally on 
the SGA bulletin Board.) 
There were memos in each 
SGA box though. 

From what I heard, you 
were the main reason and 
source of that "mistaken 
impression." It has always 
been the understanding that 
anyone is welcome and en- 
couraged to attend any Senate 

I apologize that the SGA 
cannot have over a week to 
gather different facets of 

publicity in order to properly 
distribute them. The SGA felt 
we had to release information 
on our decision as soon as 
possible in order for the 
Governor and the Board of 
Trustees to review our 
decision. Otherwise, the 
student body would have no 
other voice in the matter 
except for the floating 
petitions they have received. 

Your pen name could well 
be Nancy Drew. 

In order to get the decision 
out as soon as possible to state 
officials, the idea of a poll at 
that time was foolish. I have 
seen polls taken through 
quality newspapers, through; 
why didn't your publication 
take a poll? Are you not a 
quality editor? 

May I ask, whose 
"semantics and in- 
terpretation"— yours? 

The editor "should stand 
warned that further infr- 
ingement of the students' 
rights will be neither tolerated 
nor condoned." You should get 
into government, Co , you 
may learn something, for 
instance, — act 665, commonly 
known as the Sunshine Law, 
has no holding on Student 
Governments according to our 
state's Attorney General. 
Also, you left the meeting with 
your own two feet supporting 
you; you were not hearded off. 
You should have stayed Co , 
but then you wouldn't have 
had so much to put into your 
section, except for something 
such as "What does Fall mean 
to me." 

Co, the SGA is the line to the 
Student Body, but listen, we 
are students also and we have 
a right to express our feelings. 
But that right, never blocked 
out our responsibility to the 
Student Body; instead, it 
made us more aware of our 
obligations and our vows we 
said at our initial swearing in. 
Anyone serving in any type of 
representative capacity 
should understand the 
responsibility we carry when 
speaking on behalf of hun- 
dreds of students with diverse 
personalities. According to the 
Word of God, those elected 
and appointed representatives 
are divinely appointed also. 

Wednesday night, my 
personal feelings went 
towards the selection of 
another candidate being 
considered. It should be un- 
derstood though, that the SGA 
decided to be united in its 
selection, no matter who was 
chosen. Several points should 
be brought up: 

1. The SGA saw the decision 
as being a "drawing together" 
for the Student Body. They 
saw the appointment of a new 
president as a "make or 
break" proposition. 

2. The SGA selected Dr. 
Rene Bienvenu as the man 
they believed the student body 
would want as president of 

3. Dr. Bienvenu impressed 
the SGA with his "warmth." It 
should be understood that 
warmth is not the most valid 
qualification for the office of 
the presidency, but this univ- 
ersity needs this quality to kill 
the spirit of apathy which 
roams our campus. All of the 
candidates impressed the SGA 

with their leadership, their 
honesty, and, most of all, their 
love for Northwestern, but Dr. 
Bienvenu seemed to be the 
most charismatic. For 
example: "If appointed 
president if this institution, 
My first job would be to put up 
a swing in my yard." Does this 
sound strange? Not when Dr. 
Bienvenu offered his e*. 
planation. He stated that he 
wanted to, above all else, set 
up a better relationship bet- 
ween the President and the 
student body and with a swing, 
both could meet on a common 
level and communicate with 
whatever was to be expressed. 

4. Finally, the SGA will 
stand up for the decision and 
we will not accept any 
"slipshod and high-handed 
criticism" is unwarranted. 

Very sincerely, 
Jamie Sanders, 
Senator at Large

Our very energetic and en- 
thusiastic pledge class 
volunteered to be in charge of 

Football practice begins 
promptly at 5:30 each day and 
lasts until 7:00. The team is 
working very hard and looking 
great. We are priviledged to 
have two very fine coaches: 
Scott Wise and Luke Man- 
fried. The offense is led by 
quarterback Fran Wise and 
Pitty Cathey is the "terror" of 
the defensive line. Good luck 
girls! We're behind you — all 
the way to No. 1!!!! 

DZ held a pledging Wed- 
nesday, September 14 for girls 
issued bids during open rush. 
Congratulations! ! 

Ladies of Delta Zeta will 
join the brothers of Kappa 
Alpha on Saturday in a fund 
raising drive for the Christ- 
mas Festival. It gives us great 
pleasure to have a part in the 
promotion of one of 
Louisiana's most popular 

The DZ's would like to ex- 
tend best wishes to all the 
fraternities participating in 
intramural football. 

From the active members of

Little Sisters will be chosen 
within the next week and 
pledge class officers will be 
elected on Wednesday night. 
Composite pictures are 
scheduled for September 27. 
Initiation is September 24. 

Good Luck Demons!! The 
DZ's hope every one will join

According to many of the 
Actives in reviewing the 
Pledges, it seems that they 
believe the class contains 
some very strong leaders. 

Brother Tom Barton, the 
new intramural director, 
believes this wUl be another 
successful year for the Sigs. 
According to Barton, "With 
the quality we have in the 
Fraternity, I believe we 
should be Intramurals 
Champions again this year as 
we were last year. Bill 
Hochstetler, Director of In- 
tramurals for Northwestern 
and also a Kappa Sig alumnus 
from Louisiana Tech, will 
have his tune pretty well spent 
trying to set up a strong 
program for this academic 
year. Anyone wanting further 
information about the in- 
tramural program can call Ho

Saturday, September 17, the 
Fraternity went to the HoUday 
Inn for an after -game Casino 
Party. The party was a huge 
success, over 150 people at- 
tending it dressed "Las Vegas 
Style". Social chairman, Alton 
Burkhalter, was in charge of 
the night's festivities. Alton 
has also booked two of the top 
bands in Louisiana for the

The Beginning of Kappa 
Sigma History — The story of 
Kappa Sigma's history 
reaches back to 1400 AD in the 
city of Bologna, Italy. A 
society was formulated in 
order to protect themselves 
from tyrants which ravaged 
the people. The man 
responsible for starting this 
society (as well as the initial 
foundation of the 
Renaissance) happens to be 
the spiritual father of Kappa 
Sigma; Manual Crisolora. Led 
by Crisolora, five disciples, or 
foUowers, sought out to find 
truth, forebearance, 
humanity, but most of aU, 
brotherhood. It is brotherhood 
which houses our strength as a 
fraternity. More history next

excitement going around 
campus making everyone 
want to get involved."

Sophomore Class Senator 

Alton Burkhalter-"The

the doors to many changes in 
Northwestern's structure of

time to express the students 
interests in their university. I 
would truly appreciate the 
opportunity to represent you 
in this reforms. I feel I am 
qualified, having lived in 
Natchitoches all my life and 
associated with NSU for quite 
a while. In high school I 
served on the student 
government for three years, 
and one year as president. I 
am a business administration 
major with a 3.51 G.P.A., and 
have a sincere desire to serve 
you as the next sophomore

will be appreciate and, if 
elected, will represent." 

Pitty Cathey— I feel I am 
qualified for this position 
because I have already served 
oneyear as freshman class 
senator. All of the decisions I 
made while I was on the

the students of NSU. If elec-

and represent the total student 
body to thebest of my ability."

coming to NSU I have served 
as treasurer of the 1976 Phi Mu

the four essential charac- 
teristics of a leader which are 
dedication, honesty, depen- 
dability, and straight for- 
wardness. Already having 
completed one year as the 
freshman senator, I am very 
well acquainted with the 
problems facing the students 
attending NSU. This past 
year's expenenc e has put me

AMS. A WS seek constitutional merger 

The executive councils of 
AMS and AWS have proposed 
merging the two organizations 
into a Resident Students 
Association (RSA). The 
proposed organization will be 
more effective in resolving 
student concerns and 
providing more services, 
according to Steve McLeod, 
vice president of AMS. 

Also involved in the con- 
stitutional revision is an in- 
crease from $1 to $2 in the 
membership fee. These fees 
have been collected at the 
beginning of a semester when 
a student checks into the 
dormitory. The fees have been 
utilized to show films in the 
dormitories, to stage dorm 
parties, tournaments, to 
provide athletic and other 
equipment needed in each 
dorm. The AWS bridal show 
and the fashion show are 
funded with these fees. 

The suggested fee increase, 
according to McLeod, will not 
only enable the organizations 
to maintain the services they 
render but will also enable 
them to provide additional 
services in the future. 

"We believe the residence 
hall dollar provides more tan- 
gible return than anv other 

organizational dollar spent on 
campus," McLeod com-

held the better part of a 7-0 

But it didn't stay that way 
for long. A scant one minute 
later Willie Mosley returned 
an ASU punt to the Indian 30 
yard line, setting up Kenny 
Philibert's 29 yard pass and 
Mark Schroeder's point 
producing one yard dive. 
Pendergraft was once again 
on the mark to produce a 14-0 

Then, after a strong Demon 
defense forced ASU to punt six 
plays later, the NSU offense 
went to work with an extended 
drive that went to the Indians 
eighth yard line before Dennis 
Pendergraft was called in to 
kick a 25-yard field goal that 

made the score 17-0 in NSU's 
favor at halftime. 

The offensive machine of 
the Demons kept its 
momentum after halftime as 
NSU recovered an Indian 
fumble on the ASU 21 yard line 
and took only four plays 
before Perry Neal forced his 
way into the end zone for the 
touchdown. Pendergraft's 
kick was partially blocked by 
Chet Day and as a result the 
PAT was no good and NSU 
held a 23-0 edge in the middle 
of the third quarter. After that

Jennifer Karr— "I am 
running for Senior Class 
senator because I feel I have 
an understanding of the 
students interests and desires, 
after being an actively in- 
volved student on campus for 
four years. I have observed 
the functions and activities of 
the student government and I 
feel 1 am capable of 
representing other students 
and myself by obtaining an 
office in this organization." 

Jackie Phillips-"AS the 
word "representative" im- 
plies, I feel the person holding 
this office should represent 
those who have elected him. I 
feel I am qualified to hold this 
office because I have worked 
intimately with sororities, 
fraternities, the American 
Home Economics Association 
(local and state ) , AWS, Purple 
Jackets, and Kappa Omicron 
Phi (home economics honor 
society). I have been 
associated with the students 
as resident assistant and desk 
worker. Having lived both on 
campus and commuting to 
and from NSU, I am aware of 
the problems of commuters 
and residents. Being involved 
in these activities had enabled 
me to keep with the needs of 
my fellow students atNSU, 
and will help me to represent 
the seniors of the university."

Regulations governing 
visitation in campus dor- 
mitories have been released 
by the Office of Housing. 

These regulations which 
were revised in the Spring of 
1977 state: 

1. Visitation by members of 
the opposite sex may occur 
only during specified times for 
each residence hall. 

2. Each resident may have 
only one visitor within his-her 
assigned room and only his- 
her room. 

3. Visitors must enter and 
leave by the front door only. 

4. Visitors must sign in and 
out at the desk when entering 
and leaving the residence hall. 
A visitor's pass will be issued 
and must be returned by the 
visitor upon departure. 

5. The host or hostess must 
meet his or her guest at the 
desk lobby and escort the 
guest to the host-hostess' room 
and back to the lobby area. 

6. Rooms may not be loaned 
or rented to others. 

7. The host or hostess will be 
held accountable for the 
conduct of his-her visitor. 

According to the published 
regulations, violation of 
visitation regulations will 
subject the host or hostess to 
having their visitation 
privileges revoked and 
disciplinary action for all 
parties revoked. 

The regulations also state 
that the visitation program is 
not offered so as to ac- 
commodate sexual activities 
and students involving 
themselves in sexual ac- 
tivities during visitation (or at 
any other times in residence 
halls) are subject to 
University disciplinary ac- 
tion, to include separation 
from the institution. 

History center 

The Center for History of 
Louisiana Education has been 
established at NSU to 
preserve historical documents 
and materials relating to the 
educational heritage of the 

The Louisiana Legislature 
approved a joint resolution 
during this year's regular 
session establishing the 

Located in the Teacher 
Education Center, the new 
center was established for the 
purpose of collecting 
educational documents, 
photographs, relics and other 
memorabilia documenting, 
depicting and reflecting the 
educational heritage of 

Dr. Robert Alost, dean of the 
College of Education said the 
center has been given the 
support of the State Board of 
Elementary and Secondary 
Education, the State Board of 
Trustees for Colleges and 
Universities and the State 
Board of Regents for Higher 

"There has never been a 
central location for the 
collection of material per- 
taining to the educational 
history of this state," said 
Alost. "Students and 
Historians have had virtually 
no resource center for 
Louisiana's educational 

He added, "State Depart- 
ment of Education personnel 
changes with every election, 
and when this happens many 
important files relative to 
educational development in 
this state are lost or destroyed 
because we have not had 
archives where the documents 
could be preserved." 

Alost said, "We felt there 
snould be educational ar- 
chives in Louisiana, and that 

is why we organized our effo- 
rts to have such a center 
placed on the Northwestern 
campus. There is a tremen- 
dous amount of material— 
both of museum quality and of 
archival nature— that needs to 
be saved." 

The education dean has 
named Mrs. Fern Christen- 
sen, an associate professor of 
education, as director of the 
Center for History of 
Louisiana Education. 

Mrs. Christensen said 
Louisiana is one of only a few 
states which have established 
centers for the preservation of 
historical materials on 
educational development. 

According to Alost, the 
state's parish school system 
and education agencies are 
being encouraged to contri- 
bute materials to the center. 

"We have already had 
several items donated to the 
center," said Mrs. 
Christensen. "But what we 
would really like to have is an 
old one-room school house that 
can be restored and furnished 
to give today's young people 
an accurate picture of how 
public education was con- 
ducted in the past."

set of slides showing early 
schools of Louisiana, which 
date from 1900 to 1917. A set of

students after the turn of the 
century has also been

Five NSU business students 
are back on campus, following 
a two-day dialogue last week 
with outstanding business 
leaders and students from 14 
other Texas and Louisiana 
colleges and universities. 

Accompanied by Dr. Marie 
Burkhead, the students have 
returned with the challenge to 
explain the American free 
enterprise system, creatively 
and imaginatively, to the 
college community, area high 
schools, and other persons in 
the community. 

During the two-day session, 
hosted by Dow Chemical 
Company in Freeport, Texas, 
Monroe Silver, Ronda Stiles, 
Kent Lachney, Steven Ben-

Late next spring, the 
students and Dr. Burkhead 
will return to Freeport where 
a panel of distinguished 
business people will judge the 
effectiveness of their free 
enterpise program as com- 
pared to those of the other 
participating schools. 

A $2,000 first place prize will 
be awarded to the school with 
the best program. 

Dr. Burkhead commented, 
"We expect to form a business 
advisory council of five to ten 
local business people to assist 
us with the project. We are 
also looking for other in-

the concerns for social and individual 
transformations that have motivated 
him during two decades of writing.

for 7:30 p.m. 

At halftime, groundbreaking 
ceremonies for the Field House will be 
held with area legislators, state of-

Buckley airs opinions 
on American Freedom 

Freedom and its place in American 
society today was the main topic of the 
lecture given by William F. Buckley, 
Jr., last week as he opened NSU's 
Distinguished Lecturer's Series for the 
fall semester. 

Speaking to a responsive audience in 
the A. A. Fredericks - Fine Arts 
Auditorium, Buckley began his address 
by stating that he had always thought 
Southern people unique because they 
displayed both innocence and 

In his first proposition regarding 
freedom, Buckley stated that "the 
freedom to deceive is overindulged." 
He believes-that in today's society 
freedom of expression has brought an 
immunity to those who deceive and that 
the class who deceives the most is the 

"If freedom requires an alert class of 
truthwatchers, but the intellectual 
class does no such thing, what happens 
to freedom?" Buckley asked. 
; Buckley stated in his second 
proposition that "the contempt in which 
the capitalist class is held among 
students and intellectuals is the result 
of a moral ignorance of captitalism." 
He continued saying that while short- 
sidedness- is not a natural development 
of capitalism, "a culturally conditioned 
indifference to political philosophy 
born of an inferiority complex that 

grows out of generations of criticism of 
the capitalist function" is a develop- 

Declaring in his third proposition 
"that the use of humanitarian cliches 
should be regulated," Buckley stated 
that he had met few capitalists who 
were unwilling to use the government 
when the use of the government was 
economically - inconvenient. 

"On one drug they are almost all 
addicted— it is ignorance, " Buckley 

In his final proposition, Buckley 
announced that "we are quickly losing 
sight-of the place for human freedom 
and the relevance of the free market 
place." A freedom so far as the public is 
generally aware is a condition 
described only by highly subjective 
criteria," he stated. 

Buckley challenged the critics of 
American society to focus on the in- 
dividual in society if the critics are 
interested in the survival of the in- 

In discussing the paradox of freedom 
today, Buckley concluded by stating 
that "we find no help at all in Marx, but 
considerable help in Jesus." 

After the lecture Buckley answered 
questions from the audience and stated 
his views on many current events. He 
described President Carter's per- 
formance to date as "highly ambiguous 

LOB honors contestants 

Thirty-three excited and nervous 
girls were present at the Lady of the 
Bracelet acceptance tea which was 
held Wednesday, September 21, in the 
Cane River Room of the Student Union. 

A tea is held each year to inform the 
girls of the rules and the people who will 
be working with the pageant. 

The following girls have entered the 
pageant either on their own or spon- 
sored by an organization on campus: 
| Debbie Diane Price, Jody Elaine 
i Foster, Vivian Lee Williams, Billie 
| Brownlee Howard, Kim Ellen Cole,

Haskins, Patricia Elizabeth Morrow, 
Marie Louise Hebert, and Margaret 
! Kelly Horton. 

Five girls were unable to attend the 
tea for various reasons but will be in the 
pageant. They are Rhonda Henson, 
Melanie Jones, Peggy Jo Middleton, 

Laura Wilson, and Cindy Brown. The 
grand total of girls entering the pageant 
is 38, the largest number ever to enter. 

After a general welcome by Darleen 
Damico, executive director, punch and 
cookies were served. Denise Gueringer, 
reigning Miss Lady of the Bracelet, 
spoke to the girls and gave some advice 
to them. 

"Be positive, be yourself, and give it 
your best," was suggested by Ms. 
Gueringer. The LOB pageant was the 
first pageant she had ever entered. She 
was nominated by her sorority, but it 
was her friends in general who really 
backed her. 

She stressed that it was important 
« that the girls practice their talent every 
day. "The nore you do it, the better you 
will feel about doing it in public." 

Ms. Gueringer has visited such 
pageants as Miss Holiday in Dixie, Miss 
Minden and Miss Natchitoches, as a 
visiting queen and was often asked to 
perform. She competed in the Miss 
Louisiana pageant, with her talent 
being a song and tap dance number, 
and represented Northwestern well. 

In closing, Ms. Gueringer said, "I 
couldn't believe that I could win, but I 
thought positively and did my best." 

Cheryl Pur cell, 1976 Lady of the 
Bracelet will be the director for this 
year's pageant. She urged the girls to 
please feel free to call her if they had 

and a hodge-podge of idealism and 

When asked about the Panama Canal 
Treaty, Buckley told the audience that 
he favors the treaty and feels that it 
should be ratified "because the 
Panama Canal cannot be held to be 
strategically indispensible to the future 
of the United States." 

Stating that military leaders agree 
that the canal "could be knocked out by 
a single missil or by a single charge in a 
cargo vessel," Buckley said, "We must 
never develop a military doctrine 
that counts on the fluidity of the canal." 

Acknowledging that the canal could 
be useful in military operations, 
Buckley stated, "Having given up the 
ABM system, there is no way to protect 
the canal from attack by missile." 

Buckley indicated that the United 
States could still effectively -control the 
canal "because we have not pledged not 
1 to sink enemy ships before they reach 
the Panama Canal." 

He added, "We have the right to keep 
the canal, but we don't need it. We 
simply do not need a 10-mile strip of 
territory running through the center of 
Panama. I also see no reason to resent 
the Panamanians wanting the same 
thing that people who signed the 
Declaration of Independence wanted." 

Buckley said he finds it "ignoble and 
strategically incoherent" to urge "a 
confrontation over Panama. .to 
machine gun people in Panama who 
want only what we wanted 200 years 

Asked if the treaty would diminish 
U.S. power, Buckley said, "We lose our 
power not with any reference of what 
we dispose of but as a matter of will. 
History will probably record that the 
greatest nations in the past several 
years were not the USSR and America 
but North Vietnam and Israel because 
of their will." 

Over the years, Buckley has received 
numerous honorary degrees and 
awards. In 1969 he received a 
Television Emmy for Outstanding 
Program Achievement, and in 1974 he 
won the Cleveland Amory "TV Guide" 
Award for Best Interviewer- 
Interviewee on Television.

iWho are 

• the student 
: justices? 

i'ln reviewing action taken 
*hus far by the Student 
■Government Association this 
[semester, it should be noted 
-that although the organization 

has been very diligent in their 
-duties, especially with 
•regards to the appointment 

and approval of com- 
.chairmen, they have been lax 
rwith regards to the Student 
^Supreme Court. 

!■ According to the SGA 
^Constitution, Art. HI, Sec. 2, 
rCl. 1: "Members of the 
^Student Supreme Court shall 
-serve one year or until they 
5 resign or cease to be regularly 
enrolled students at Nor- 
1 thwestern State University..." 
..The constitution states that 
- the court shall consist of seven 
5 members, with five con- 
destituting a quorum. 

Last spring, after the 
: general election was con- 
\ tested, a Student Supreme 

Court was selected and ap- 
proved. Of the seven members 
appointed at this time, four 
are no longer students at NSU. 
This editor is not certain 
whether the remaining three 
justices have tenure, but the 
president definitely needs to 
look to completing the Student 
Supreme Court. The ap- 
pointment of a Chief Justice is 
also necessary. 

This editor can see no 
reasonwhy the appointment of 
the Student Supreme Court is 
not accomplished until an SGA 
election is called into question, 
the Student Government 
Association leaves itself open 
for justifiable criticism. 

Perhaps the SGA president 
can look into areas of appoint- 
ments and rectify this over- 


On October 27, 1976, 
students at NSU went to the 

polls to decide the future of 
KNWD by voting the radio 
station an increase in student 
fees of $1.50. 

The increase was to com- 
pensate for rising costs and 
new equipment. A portion of 
the fee would also be applied 
to the $5,250 debt KNWD owed 
the SGA. KNWD's manager at 
the time of the referendum, 
Chuck Cason, said that one of 
the first things that would be 
done with the additional 
money would be to see to the 
relocation of the tower so that 
it would no longer interfere 
with television reception. 

To date, KNWD has repaid 
half its debt to the SGA. But, 
the issue which still remains 
controversial is that the tower 
has not yet been relocated and 
thus there is still television 

KNWD has tried, un- 
successfully, several times to 
relocate their tower, but for 
some reason or the other they 
have not been able to resolve 
their problem. 

The last this editor heard on 
the topic was that KNWD had 
requested that they be allowed 
to place their tower atop the 

Natchitoches Airport control 
tower. The Airport Commiss- 
ion approved KNWD's request 
but the Federal Aviation 
Administration (FAA) must 
approve the request. 

Upon receipt of the FAA's 
decision, KNWD will or will 
not relocate their tower. So, for 
now, it seems to be the lot of 
students to wait and see what 
the powers above decide. If 
the tower cannot be placed at 
the airport, hopefully an 
alternate solution can be

president of SUGB, welcomed 
them and said all the mem- 
bers were looking forward to 
working with them. 

On Sept. 28, Wednesday, an 
arts and crafts show will be

A motion passed 
unanimously by the Senate at 
a recent SGA meeting com- 
bines Senate Rules No. 3 and 
No. 4 into one rule. 

In summary, the combined 
senate rule states that all bills 
and resolutions must be given 
to the Clerk of the Senate 
before the regular Senate 
meeting each week. 

"The reason for this is to 
allow the Secretary and her 
assistant an opportunity to 
type all such bills and 

resolutions before the 
meeting," said Lane Pittard, 
Vice-President and Chairman 
of the Senate. 

"The president SGA Senate 
is the hardest working operat- 
ing Senate that I have seen in 
the past three years," said 
Pittard. "It is because of this 
that so many resolutions and 
bills are being introduced." 

Pittard believes that this 
combined senate rule will help 
better organize such

(Editor's Note: Reflections 
is a column which hosts the 
members of the United 
Campus Ministers 
organization. This week's 
guests are Rev. Greg Werdin, 
Lutheran campus minister 
and the BSU Director.) 

Jesus Christ has given us 
the blessing to turn to him in 
prayer; in fact, He has 
commanded that we turn to 
Him in prayer. Our life every 
day everywhere is to be one of 
prayer. Sad to say that is not 
the case and we usually 
reserve Sunday for our day of 
prayer. Here are two prayers 
that I enjoy and they can be 
examples of ho w to pray every 
day and everywhere: 
"Thanks for the Popcorn 


Lord, I'd like to thank you 
for popcorn! That's right- 
nice ordinary, salted, hot- 
buttered popcorn. 

I bet a lot of us popcorn- 

lovers forgot to thank You for 
such trivial things as popcorn. 
So this prayer is dedicated to 
trivial things like popcorn. 

What would a movie be 
without popcorn? What would 
a slumber party be without 
popcorn? How exciting would 
a circus be without popcorn? 
And what would the animals 
at the zoo do without popcorn? 

So thanks for popcorn, 
Lord ! If you think enough of us 
to give us popcorn, you must 
think enough of us to give us 
the essential needs too. 

I pray that I always think 
enough of YOU THANK Yoi 
for the popcorn!. 

"How Long is a Prayer?" 
Lord, how long should a 
prayer be? 

Do you really like long 
prayers, Lord? How long does 
a prayer have to be for it to 

I don't like long, drawn-out 
prayers to You. I like the 
quick openers that come right 
to the point. In a church 

NSU Demons take on the 
Northeast Indians 

in Homecoming 

action Oct. 1. 

service, Lord, is it really 
necessary to tell you that 
Grandma Schultz, who is the 
mother of Mrs. Smith, is in 
Room 103 of Memorial 
Hospital and would like to be 
visited after 3 p.m. on Mon- 
days? Lord, maybe we mix up 
what a prayer is and instead 
make it into a general an- 

Help me, Lord, either to 
accept long praytrs or else to 
tell the prayer to shorten 

I think the Lord's prayer is 
about the right length. 

I better stop now; this 
prayer is getting too long. 

Greg Werdin 

It would appear that the 
"Old West" was a place of the 
pioneering spirit. I have 
always liked cowboy movies 
and Big Little Books (boy did I 
date myself). In recent years I 
have visited the grave of Billy 
the Kid at Fort Sumner, New 
Mexico. (This may surprise 
some of you). But, the spirit of 
adventure of those who have 
gone before presents a real 

challenge. I envy those who 
went west in covered wagons. 
Seldom did they give up or 
turn back. 

These past few years I have 
heard many voices share 
concern over the apathy on 
our campus: the Current 
Sauce, the student govern- 
ment, some interested 
students, and often, a faculty 
member. I think it is only fair 
to say, "Apathy is common in 
many areas of life: the 
government, the home, the 
church, and other schools." It 
would appear from my 
present perspective, that I 
hear more groaning than 

Persons seem to go in two 
directions. They either take a 
look at an institution and 
discount it as a place that once 
served a great purpose, but is 
now largely or totally out- 
moded; or, they look at a 
situation, and say, "I see all 
kinds of possiblities and 
challenges and if things are to 
be different, it is up to me." 

Alex Haley did something 
for Americans. He reminded 
us "whence we came." This 

may be an important lesson 
for some of us, because when 
we spend all of our time 
groaning about our part, it is 
difficult to celebrate in the 

In recent days on our 
campus, I have caught a new 
glimpse of hope. I have met 
several new campus ministers 
that are unique, outstanding 
servants of God. Some of you 
are missing out by not taking 
time to meet and greet your 
campus ministers. I have been 
excited about our football 
team and that they are 
allowing us to celebrate. Many 
of you are optimistic about the 
increased enrollment and 
promise of a better NSU. I 
have also talked with several 
new faculty members with 
new and creative ideas. 

Last month, I read in 
Readers' Digest a short 
quotation by William Hi 
Johnson. If adopted, it could 
help us to celebrate: 

Ten important two-letter 
If it is to be, 
It is up to me.

Dear Editor 

As Spirit Committee 
Chairman, I would like to 
commend all of the students 
who have attended NSU 
games, and for the spirit they 
have shown at these games. 
I've been given compliments 
from the coaches, ad- 
ministrators and faculty conc- 
erning the attitude of the 
students. It means more to the 
t»«tfri th»r mos* pi>opli* r e°lize 
to know that they have the 
support of the students behind 
them and with this weekend 

being homecoming we need to 
really show up and support the 

Also I would like to remind 
some of the Greek 
organizations that as students 
we are at the games to support 
the Demons not the 
organization that we may 
belong to. So next time instead 
of your cheers for your 
organization, how about 
cheering for the DEMONS.

"What is it like being a guy 
cheerleader?" I wish I had a 
dollar for each time I've heard 
that question! My usual, 
convenient answer is "great." 
But, listen, there are countless 
other reasons besides having a 
great time. For instance: 

I've met people whom I 
would never have gotten to 
meet before unless for some 
disciplinary reason.

a smile and-or hello. 

It has taught me "humility"

It has let me work under two 
dynamic administrators

It has taught me to "keep in 
touch" through the endless 

efforts of a few secretaries 
who treat me like their son. 

It has taught me to accept 
myself as an individual and to 
live each day to its fullest. 

It has been trying its best to 
teach me a lesson of love. "Let 
nothing be done through strife 
or vain glory; but in lowliness 
of mind let each esteem others 
better than themselves." 
Phillipians 2:3 KJV 

And, it has given me the 
pleasure and honor of working 
with some talented and 
beautiful girls (inside and 
out): Diane , Cheryl, Ronda, 
Kathy, Rene, Fonda, Evelyn, 
Laurie, Marylyn, Becky and 
Bon Bon. 

I could go on and on, but I'm 
pretty sure you can see why 
being a guy cheerleader is 
"Great" to me.

Delta Zeta 

Delta Zeta would like to 
warmly welcome the follow- 
ing girls into their sisterhood! 
They are Linda Hernholm, 
Kathy Lotkowski, Patti 
Corder, and Leslie Richardson 
and have pledged into DZ in 
the recent weeks. 

The Delta Zetas were 
pleased at the recent selection 
of Dr. Rene' Bienvenu as the 
new Northwestern State 
University President. They 
wish Dr. Bienvenu the best of 
luck and warmest regards 
during his administration at 
Northwestern. They also 
welcome back Mrs. Bienvenu, 
who is not only NSU's new 

first lady, but also a very 

admired Delta Zeta Alumni! 

The DZ's held an Open 
House for all the parents 
during Parent Day, Sep- 
tember 17. They enjoyed 
meeting the parents of sisters 
and extend an invitation to 
them to visit at any time. 

The 1977 Fall Pledge Class 
has announced their officers 
for the remainder of their 
pledgeship. They are: Cindy 
Bergeron, President; Sharon 
Arthur, Vice President; 
Sharon Miller, Secretary; 
Teresa Kile, Treasurer; Kim 
Mourad, Parliamentarian; 
and Dana Roth, Panhellenic 
Delegate. The pledges are 
especially busy; after getting 
their study buddies last week 
they are hard at work in the 
academic department. The 
pledges have also begun 
getting letters from their big 
sisters, and will learn the 
identities of these girls within 
the next few weeks. 

Delta Zeta will be busy at 
work this week on their entry 
into the Homecoming Parade. 
The float will be entered as a 
joint product of the DZ's and 
the brothers of Sigma Tau 
Gamma Fraternity. They are 
looking forward to this op- 
portunity to work with and get 
to know these fine young men. 

Congratulations are in order 
for Two Delta Zetas; Anne 
Manson and Wendy Mau were 
initiated into the bonds of 
Delta Zeta this past Sunday, 
followed by the attendance of 
the entire chapter at First 
Presbyterian Church. It was a 
weekend enjoyed by all. 

DZ's are looking extremely 
forward to a chapter exchange 
this week with the brothers of 
Kappa Sigma Fraternity. The 
exchange will be held Thur- 
sday evening and the two 
chapters' social chairmen, 
Vanessa Davis and Alton 
Burkh alter, are promising a 
night of fun for everyone! 

Delta Zeta Congratulates 
Vanessa Davis on being a 
member of this weekend's 
Homecoming Court!! Also 
congratulations to Jennifer 
Karr and Jackie Phillips, who 
Were elected as Senior Class 
Senators. Good luck to Pitty 
Cathey in tomorrow's runoff 
(or Sophomore Class Senator. 

Kappa Alpha 

This past week has been 
very exciting, first Kappa 
Alpha had a chapter exchange 
with their sister sorority, Phi 
Mu. Champagne and other 
refreshments were served. 
The exchange went well and 
was a great success. The 
brothers would like to thank 
Phi Mu and hope they had a 
great time. 

Saturday morning the 
brothers along with Delta Zeta 
collected donations for the 
Christmas Festival, with over 
$500.00 being donated. 
Saturday night Kappa Alpha 
and the brothers of Sigma Tau 
Gamma held a Disco Party 
out at the Jaycee Hall. The 
party was a great success. 
During the party the new 
President, Dr. Rene' Bien- 
venu came and thanked KA 
and Sig Tau for theiriielp. The 
brothers would again like to 
congratulate Dr. Bienvenu on 
his appointment. They would 
also like to congratulate the 
football team on a spectacular 
win against Arkansas State 
and on a great comeback after 
Cincinatti. Good luck, again, 
this week against Northeast. 

Monday night the actives 
and pledges got together with 
their Alumnus Advisor, Mr. 
Joe Lewis and one of their 
alumni, Steve Mathies and 
had a "Now's the time" party. 
The party was a great and 
rewarding success. The 
brothers thank Mr. Joe for the 
keg and for all of his help and 
Steve on his loyal 
brotherhood. Thank you both. 

The Brothers would like to 
wish our football teams and all 
the other greek teams good 
luck during your games. 

Kappa Sigma 

Many Kappa Sigmas have 
been under the teachings of 
Dr. Rene' Bienvenu and now 
they are looking forward to his 
leadership as the new 
President of Northwestern. In 
the words of one Sig, "We all 
welcome home Dr .Bienvenu." 

Four more men have taken 
the initial step in becoming a 
true Kappa Sigma by pledging 
the Theta Mu Chapter of the 
Kappa Sigma family. The f our 
new pledges are Laney 
Spence, Chris Craighead, 
John Shoptagh, and Jeff 
Magiorski. The Fall Pledge 
class is busily working on the 
Fraternity's entry for the 
upcoming Homecoming 
Parade. Replacing Mark 
Manuel as Pledge Trainer is 
Mark Cottrell, who was an all- 
state football player from Fair 
Park in Shreveport. The 
Spring Pledge Class is under 
the leadership of Big John 
McKellar and Tom "T" 
Barton, both from Bossier 

The fall semester brings 
football, baseball, pep rallies, 
and dates, dates, dates! But it 
also means growing acade- 
mically which the Sigs are 

stressing to all who pledge and 
later go active. Landy Hall, a 
Natchitoches product and son 
of NSU professor Dr. Hurst 
Hall, has setup study halls in 
order for the Sigs to get 
together and wrack their 
brains out. 

Phi Mu 

The sisters of Phi Mu 
Fraternity welcomed the 
families on Family Day with a 
tea. They enjoyed meeting 
and visiting with the families, 
and would like to welcome 
them back to Northwestern 
and the Phi Mu house any 

As a social service project, 
the Phi Mus will be visiting 
with the children at the 
schools for the retarded in 
Natchitoches. The Phi Mu 
washboard band will play, and 
specially made "life-saver 
dolls" will be given to the 
children. The Phi Mu's would 
like to encourage anyone who 
is interested in joining them in 
this worthwhile project to 
come along. 

The Phi Mus have been 
participating in the co-ed 
baseball, punt, pass and kick, 
and football intramurals. 
They would like t-o thmV their 
number one man, Andy 
McGlathery, for his coaching. 

The Phi Mu's are really 
getting psyched up for Home- 
coming weekend. They will 
entertain with another tea 
Saturday and are making 
plans for the float on which the 
Phi Mu sisters will ride in the 
Homecoming Parade. 
Congratulations Demons on 
your victories thus far, and 
remember that Phi Mu is 
behind you all the way. 

Pi Kappa Phi 

The brothers of Pi Kappa 
Phi welcome everyone back to 
NSU and hope that it will be a 
prosperous semester. 

Pi Kaps would especially 
like to welcome their new 
pledges; Kenneth Ashley, 
James Guide, and Dodd 
Smith. Congratulations guys! 

Special thanks go out to 
faculty advisor, Dr. Wayne 
Guin, for all the help he has 
given Pi Kapp during rush 
week. Anyone interested in 
becoming a Pi Kapp, please 
get in touch with Dr. Guin or 
any of the Pi Kapps. 

The new officers for the fall 
semester are Gary Penning- 
ton, Archon; Tyrone Maxey, 
Vice Archon; David Lafitte, 
Treasurer; Ricky Salley, 
Secretary; Johnny Harrison, 
Warden; Johnny Murray, 
Historian; and John Hen- 
nigan, Chaplain. 

The little sisters of Pi Kappa 
Phi held their initiation 
ceremony Monday, Sep- 
tember 19. Those initiated 
were Mary Pat Baldridge, and 
Judy Elliott. 

Big Brother— little brother 
ceremonies were held Sept- 
ember 26. 

September 21 is always a 
special date to the Pi Kapps of 
Betta Omicron Chapter. 
Twenty-one years ago, Sep- 
tember 21, 1956, a group of 
young men, headed by Jack 
McCain of Natchitoches 
formed this chapter. 
Everyone celebrated at a cake 
and punch party provided by 
the little sisters.

Sigma finally received the 
identities of their "Big 
Sisters" Friday September 16. 
There was a campout on the 
Cane River at the home of Mr. 
and Mrs. Henry Cook Taylor. 

Tri Sigma sisters would like 
to congratulate pledge Shelly 
Spohn, who was elected one of 
NSU's Batgirls. 

The party to have been 
given for Vickie Ansemi was 
cancelled from its September 
18 date until September 25. Tri 


Sigmas enjoyed the shower< 
immensely. ♦

enjoyed themselves, and as

quoted as saying, "I've never 
had so much fun."

On Wednesday, September 
28, students will go to the polls 
to vote on the constitutional 
merger proposed by the AMS 
and AWS executive councils. 
The proposed organization, a 
Resident Association, will be 
more effective in resolving 
student concerns and 
providing more services, 
according to Steve McLeod, 
vice-president of SMA. 

In the proposed constitution, 
the councils are asking for a 
membership fee increase of 
$1. Thus, $2 will be collected 
from each dorm resident as he 
or she checks into the dorm at 
the beginning of each 

The suggested fee increase, 
according to McLeod, will not 
only enable the organizations 
to maitain the services (dorm 
parties, films, tournaments, 
etc.) they render but will also 
enable them to provide ad- 
ditional services in the future. 
The polls will be open from 8

Demons keep Chief Caddo; topple ' Jacks' 

The NSU Demons finally 
japped a near your old road 
■ Saturday night as they 
jfeated the Lumberjacks of 
jephen F. Austin 20-6 in the 
jnual battle for Chief Caddo. 

But it didn't start out that 

The 'Jacks put a scare into 
emon fans by taking the 
jening kickoff and driving 80 
irds to put NSU immediately 
Jiind 6-0. Hunter Mullikin's 
jint after attempt was foiled 
l Johnny Ray Smith 
inaged to get a hand on the 

After the initial scoring 

jive things settled down until 

ie end of the first quarter. 

ie Demons then mounted a 

live which carried them 

\m to the SFA 36 yard line. 

len quarterback Kenny 

iiilibert put on his passing 

kn and threw a 36 yard 

Hichdown pass to wide 

ceiver James Bennett on the 

|st play of the second 

• iarter. Dennis Pendergraft 

is his usual reliable self as 

i booted the extra point good 

and the score stood at 7-6 in 
NSU's favor. 

The tough Demon defense 
forced Stephen F. to punt their 
very next series and a big 51 
yard pass play from Philibert 
to Mike Almond set up a 40 
yard field goal by Pen- 

Then both teams decided 
they didn't want the ball as 
SFA threw an interception to 
Tommie Braden and two plays 
later Joe Delaney fumbled 
and SFA's Randy Klein rec- 
overed. Then, once again two 
plays later, the "Jacks Bobby 
Mitchell fumbled and NSU's 
Willie Washington fell on the 
ball. The last fumble hurt 
Stephen F. as Philibert once 
again found Almond open and 
chunked a 29 yard touchdown 
pass. Pendergraft once again 
did his thing and the score at 

halftime stook at 17-6 Demons 

The third quarter proved 
rather uneventful as NSU 
penetrated into Lumberjack 
territory twice but was turned 
away both times. Then 
midway through the fourth 
quarter the Demons got down 
to the SFA 29 and on fourth 
and four let Pendergraft have a 
shot at a 46 yard field goal. 
The kick split the uprights for 
three points and tied Pen- 
dergraft with the NSU record 
for longest field goal. The 
record was solely held by 
Wayne Walker who booted a 46 
yard field goal against 
Southeastern La. in 1965. 

Northwestern will challenge 
Northeast La. in the annual 
Homecoming game Sat. Oct. 1

Lady Demons 
lose in tourney 

The NSU Lady Demon 
volleyball team is not off to a 
very good start this season. 

The Lady Demons went to 
Lafayette Saturday to part- 
icipate in the USL Tour- 
nament and came back home 
with two losses. 

In the first match NSU 
played Southeast La. and lost 
by a 16-18, 2-15 margin. NSU 
coach Carolyn Miles com- 
mented, Southeast is not as 
strong as we are but played 
more consistantly." 

In the second match of the 
day the Lady Demons played 
the powerful USL team and 
lost by a 3-15, 8-15 tally. Coach 
Miles had nothing but praise 
for USL saying, "USL is one of 
the better teams in the south." 

The Lady Demons next 
match will be here Oct. 4 when 
the volleyballers will host 
LSU, USL and Northeast La. 
in a round-robin tourney. 
Matches will begin at 6:00 in 
the P.E. Majors Building.

cultivate their French and their ticipated in the program last year, 
apprecitation of their French 
heritage to pursue a one-year course 

'It is an experience' 

The Velvet Knights and the 
Black Knights are military 
precision drill teams. The 
Velvet Knights are the female 
counterparts of the Black 
Knights. To be in either, a 
person must be a student at 
NSU and have at least a 2.0 

Commander of the Velvet 
Knights is Jan Norman. She 
has marched with the Velvet 
Knights for five semesters and 
been commander for three. 
Other members include 
Mary an Maples, Tami Coffey, 
Sharon Ford, Debra Coleman, 
Susan Watson, Don Osborne, 
Donna Milton, June Sellers, 
Linda Scott, Barbara Johnson, 
Anita Smith, Vickey Carter, 
Geneva Houston, Catherine 
Hoover, and Cheryl Green. 

Velvet Knights were 
organized in the fall semester 
of 1975 to teach females the art 
of military precision drills. 
They march in the Nat- 

For many college students, 
the idea of attending school in 
France for nine months is 
nothing more than a pleasant 
day dream. But for NSU 
senior Kim Steinhorst, that 
day dream turned into reality. 

Steinhorst was selected to 
study in Montpellier, France, 
by the Academic Advisory 
Board of the Council for the 
Development of French in 
Louisiana. He studied at the 
University Paul Valery for 
two semesters during the 1976- 
77 school year. 

According to Steinhorst, he 
learned of the unique op- 
portunity to study in France 
from Dr. Elizabeth Rubino, 
the CODOFIL Consortium 
representative at NSU. 

In May 1976, Steinhorst 
travelled to Baton Rouge for a 
series of tests and interviews 
which were designed to 
measure the student's French 
comprehension rate, and 
ability to handle situations 
that might arise in Europe. 

When asked about his 
knowledge of the French 

language, Steinhorst ex- 
plained that he studied French 
for two years in high school 
and minored in the subject at 

"I could not speak French 
very well when I left the U.S., 
but I understood the language 
fairly well because of growing 
up in Lafayette," he com- 

Steinhorst accepted the 
invitation to study in Mont- 
pellier and was named the 
recipient of a $1,000 
scholarship. Since the 
scholarship covered less than 
one third of the student ex- 
penses, the Louisiana 
Legislature voted to increase 
the scholarship by $200 to 
provide more financial 

After arriving in Mont- 
pellier, Steinhorst enrolled in 
the Institute for Foreign 
Students (Institute Des 
Etudiants Etrangers) at Paul 
Valery which conducts an 
intensive French language 
study course. Required 
courses of study in the 
program were French

grammar, language 
laboratory, contemporary 
civilization, and resume and 
commentary of texts. French 
literature, geography, and 
history were among the 
electives he studied. 

The social studies major 
explained that all classes were 
taught completely in French 
regardless of the student's 
native tongue. 

"When you have 
Americans, Chinese, Ger- 
mans, Africans, and Japanese 
in one classroom trying to 
understand a teacher who is 
speaking French, it is quite an 
experience," he remarked. 

During his stay in France, 
Steinhorst lived in the home of 
a young French couple. "We 
got along very well, even 
though the wife spoke no 
English at all," Steinhorst 
commented. "I really hated to 
leave them when it was time 
to come home." 

After living in France for 
nine months, Steinhorst 
doubled his French 
vocabulary and is now bi- 
lingual. "I now think in 
French sometimes, and must 
translate my words to 
English," he remarked. 

When questioned about 
differenct customs and social 
activities in France, 
Steinhorst explained that 
cafes, movies and discotheque 
were the popular places to go. 

He stated that French 
eating habits were similiar to 
those in the U.S. with the 
exception that wine is served 
more frequently in France as 
a lunch and dinner drink. 

When asked to compare the 
educational systems of the two 
countries, Steinhorst stated 
that after observing the 
French system, he prefers the 
American system of 
education. He explained that 
in the regular French 
university, the student takes 
one three-hour examination at 
the end of a year's work. "This 
puts an enormous amount of 
pressure on the student," he 

In the Institute for Foreign 
Students, four exams covering 
the required and elective 
subjects were given to the 

chitoches Christmas Festival 
each year. They also march in 
Colfax, Many, Leesville, 
Shreveport for the Tech 
weekend and in New Orleans 
for Mardi Gras. 

The team competed in 
Champagne, 111. in 1976, and 
placed 4th out of a field of 72. 
They have also place in some 
of the parades they marched 
in. In the summer, they co- 
host a drill seminar for high 
school students and they also 
co-host the annual James A. 
Noe Memorial Drill meet 
which will be held on Dec. 3 
this year. The other co-hosts 
for the seminar and drill meet 
is the Black Knights. 

The Black Knights also 
perform in many drill meets. 
Most of them are major 
college level drill meets such 
as those at Tulane, LSU, and 
Texas A & M. They are con- 
sidered the No. 1 drill team in 
the Southwest.

'Gone Out' cast 

Cast members for "Gone 
Out," the first University 
theater production of this 
season were announced last 
week by Ray Schexnider, 
associate professor of speech. 

The cast, which is composed 
of five men and five women, 
includes: Charlie Grau, Mike 
Doren, Bill Rhoten, Bruce 
Watkins, Don Hall, Merriken 
Bolding, Debbie Gray Min- 
turn, Valerie Cook, Kay

"Gone Out", written by 
Polish playwright Tadeusz 
Rozewicz, will be presented 
Oct. 19-22 in the Little Theater. 

According to Schexnider, 
roles will not be assigned to 
cast members until after 
rehearsals begin. The four 
main roles in the play are the 

mother and father, Eve and 
Henry, and the son and 
daughter, Benjamin and 
Gizela. The six remaining cast 
members will play a variety of 

"Gone Out" will be a multi- 
media production in which 
both film and projection will 
be used. 

"Due to the nature of the 
script, lights and music are 
principle elments of the 
production," Schexnider 

Two theater techniques 
devised by the Greeks will be 
incorporated in "Gone Out"— 
a chorus and the use of masks. 

Schexnider explained that 
certain elements and 
characters from another 
Rozewicz play, "Card Index," 
will be used in this production 
of "Gone Out." 

St. Denis 

to be renovated 

Plans are being made to 
renovate the old St. Denis 
building on NSU's campus in 
order to lease or rent the 
space to a state agency. 

Cecil Knotts, Director of 
Student Services said that in 
order to meet bonded debts 
which financed the building, 
the university has contacted 
several state agencies, over a 
two year period. 

Estimated cost of 
renovating the building is 

$200,000 according to Knotts. 

Bids, not under advisement, 
were opened Sept. 1, and the 
contract for renovations will 
be awarded to the contractor 
with the lowest bid. 

Knotts also noted that no 
contract has yet been awar- 
ded, nor has a lease been 
signed with an agency. 

The contract award and the 
signed lease are expected to 
be finalized within a few

October 4, 1977 

PRESENTATION - Mrs. Margaret Dial, president of the NSU 
Alumni Association, presented Homecoming Queen, Diane 
McKellar with a football autographed by the team members. 
The presentation took place at the Homecoming Dance. 


Beginning with the pep rally Friday 
evening and ending with the Demons' 
13-0 victory over the Northeast Indians, 
the 1977 Homecoming weekend was 
both eventful and fun-filled. 

In addition to the pep rally Friday, 
the SUGB Social Activities sponsored a 
Homecoming dance. The highlight of 
the dance was the presentation of the 
Homecoming Court and the revelation 
of the Homecoming queen. Mrs. 
Margaret Dial, president of the Alumni 
Association, presented a football, 
autographed by the team, to Diane 
McKellar, this year's queen. 

Saturday's activities began with a 
parade through Natchitoches ending at 
the river front. Riding in the parade 
were the Homecoming queen and her 
court, the cheerleaders, Deriise Gue- 
ringer, Lady of the Bracelet and floats. 

Winning prizes for their float entries 
were Delta Zeta-Sigma Tau Gamma, 
$100 first prize, BSU, $75 second prize, 
and the third place $50 prize went to 
Kappa Alpha. 

Registration, tours and a reception 
for alumni were held during the course 
of the afternoon. An alumni banquet 
was held at the Coliseum at 5 p. m. 

Pre-game ceremonies consisted of 
the presentation of the Homecoming 
court, escorted by members of their , 
families. Diane MoKpllar was orowncd 

by President Arnold R. Kilpatrick. 
David Walker, SGA president, assisted 
by last year's queen, Sandy Spohn, 
presented Miss McKellar with a bou- 
quet of mums. 

Other members of the court were 
Marylyn Bartek, Lorraine Billeadeau, 
Cindy Black, Vanessa Davis, Cindy 
Hall, Cammie Hargis, Yolanda 
Rayford, and Teri Wilson. 

Half-time ceremonies included the 
groundbreaking for the $2.1 million 
athletic field house. The 38,000 square 
foot, three wing field house will be 
constructed some 100 feet south of the 
stadium. Participating in the 
ceremonies were President Kilpatrick, 
President-elect Rene Bienvenu, Mayor 
Bobby DeBlieux Senator Don Kelly, 
Representative Jimmy Long, U. S. 
Representative Jerry Huckaby, and 
Senator Brian Poster, and Rep. Bud 

Half-time presentations by the 
Demon Marching Band and the - Cane 
River Belles in keeping with the theme 
"Something Old. ..Something New," 
included Clifton Williams' 
"Sinofonians" march, medley of

Personnel Ad^ KNWD-FM radio station is in the 
ion, NSU Studentj Process of getting ready to move their 
Assn. NSU Campusj antenna and transmitter to the Nat- 
Club and Rejinalchitoches Parish Airport. The present 
1372 of the Catholic antenna site, on top of Russell Library, 

i of America. 

is too close to dormitories and in- 
terferes with television reception. 

The prospective location of the an- 
tenna is the airport beacon tower. The 
Natchitoches Parish Airport Com- 
mission has welcomed the project as 
long as the antenna does not interfere 
with airport transmission and com- 

KNWD has contacted a first class 
onsulting engineer licensed by the 
''CC (Federal Communications 
bmmission), to investigate the an- 
emia project sometime this week and 
o officially let the airport commission 
mow whether or not the antenna will 

interfere with airport transmission. 
However, the Federal Aviation Ad- 
ministration in Shreveport has already 
unofficially advised KNWD that the 
antenna will not interfere. 

A representative from the FCC in 
Washington, D.C. said that after the 
engineer has cleared KNWD's antenna 
with the airport, the necessary forms 
will be sent to the FCC where it usually 
takes approximately 120 days to 
process the application. The 
representative also said that because of 
the interference problem, he would help 
speed up the process. 

This semester KNWD plans to make 
the final payment of the $5,250 SBA loan 
which got the campus station started. 
Despite this, KNWD is still financially 
ready to move the antenna because 
they have withheld from buying needed 
studio equipment.

Wasted food and boredom are two 
major problems that have to be dealt 
with at Iberville Dining Hall, according 
to Mike Bailes, cafeteria director. 

"If we could cut back on waste we 
could eliminate boredom with special 
events, 'Bailes commented. He 
elaborated on the waste problem with 
the following example: if every student 
who eats in Iberville was to throw away 
one glass of milk a week, at the end of 
the year thoy would have wasted $5000. 

Bailes stated that if students would 
cooperate with regard to the food 
waste problem, things could be quite 
different. He listed a number of 
"montony breakers" which have been 
featured and could be featured more 
often : building one's own shortcake or 
banana split, hot apple cobbler and ice 
cream, and midnight breakfasts, to 
name a few. He explained that it is 
difficult to have something nice when 
funds are limited. 
"I feel we have good food and 


adequate serving hours (they are open 
nine hours a day)," Bailes said. If 
students have a menu request, a food 
item they would like to see served, if it 
is within reason, it can be supplied upon 
request, Bailes emphasized. 

Kc-f urther urged that if students have 
a compaint, problem or request he 
would welcome the opportunity to sit 
down with them and try to solve it. "If 
they will come to me, I will correct the 
problem," Bailes said. 

Another problem Bailes mentioned 
was the fact that students have a ten- 
dency to lift supplies— dishes, silver- 
ware and the like. It costs thousands of 
dollars to replace such items and this 
money comes from the budget. It could 
be used to a greater advantage if 
students would cooperate. ' 

Bailes reiterated the fact that if 
students would cooperate, especially 
with regards to food waste, changes 
will be evidenced.

Residents receive 
dorm telephones 

"We, the undersigned, do hereby 
submit this petition of protest in regard 
to the delay in the installation of 
telephones within the dormitory rooms 
of second and third floors of East Caddo 
and Caspari Halls. Girls were assigned 
rooms under the false assurance of 
receiving telephones within, (at the 
most) two weeks of arrival. We further 
submit an appeal that the girls in the 
above mentioned rooms, be granted a 
refund in the form of credit toward the 
balance of fees for the absence of 
telephones during the month extending 
from August 21 through September 16." 

This petition of protest was signed by 
a total of 111 girls residing in East 

Caddo and Caspari Halls due to the 
absence of telephones in the dorms. The 
telephones were removed when East 
Caddo was closed a few semesters ago. 

"It was the University's fault that the 
telephone installation was delayed," 
stated Cecil Knotts, director of student 

He added that students pay a $16 per 
semester housing fee which goes 
toward phone payments. To rectify this 
situation each student without a 
telephone will be refunded six dollars 
for the time they had no telephones. 

Telephones are presently being in- 
stalled in these dormitories.

Page 2, CURRENT SAUCE October 4, 1977 

Co's Corner 

During his recent visit to 
Northwestern, William F. 
Buckley discovered, during 
the course of a conversation 
with persons at NSU, that he 
may have made an error in 

In his column this past 
weekend, Buckley stated, "I 
wish to atone for what I now 
conceive as a misjudgement, 
namely by public support of 
that provision in the federal 
wage increase package last 
January which forbids 
members of Congress from 
earning more than $8000 per 
year from extracurricular 

It seems that Buckley 
learned from his hosts at 
Northwestern that it is 
becoming increasingly dif- 

ficult to engage the services of 
interesting congressmen or 
senators to speak. Would one 
not, given the fact that he can 
earn only an additional $8000, 
choose carefully the 
universities and cities where 
he would speak so as to gain 
the more publicity and larger 
audiences ? 

Thus, it follows that if one 
can not afford to earn more 
than $8000, one will be highly 
selective in his choice of 
speaking engagements and 
Northwestern may not be able 
to engage, in the future, the 
services of Congressmen and 
Senators whom students and 
others would be interested in 
hearing and questioning. 

Perhaps Buckley's article 
will cause the ethics com- 
mittee to reevaluate their bill 

and possibly institute changes 
which would be beneficial to 
all concerned. 

Did one happen to notice the 
purple, orange and white flags 
which were displayed around 
town, on the top of the 
stadium, on the university's 
front gates and on the Student 
Union Saturday? 

These banners were pur- 
chased by the Demon Booster 
Club and will be displayed on 
the day of every home game. 
This past weekend several 
NSU organizations took time 
from their Homecoming 
activities to erect the banners. 

This added feature serves to 
enhance our pride in our 
university and our football 
team, as strides are taken to 
shake off the apathy which has

SGA audits 
KNWD records 

The Student Government 
Association has decided to 
audit the financial records at 
KNWD radio station in order 
to become better acquainted 
with the expenditures of the 
radio. This audit will give the 
students an insight into the 
improvements that the radio 
station has made since the 
referendum passed last fall 
granting it a fee increase. 

David Walker, SGA 
president, said long range 
plans include taking a look at 

the organizational structure of 
KNWD, and determining what 
long range plans KNWD has. 

The SGA passed a motion at 
its regular meeting Sept. 26 
which stipulates "no person 
can serve on two consecutive 
courts in any one semester." 

This change became ef- 
fective immediately. Although 
this policy has been previously 
honored, the SGA felt it neces- 
sary to officially change the 
election code.

Being a freshman 
cheerleader is truly an honor. 
Not many freshmen at other 
colleges get to participate in 
such an activity. 

The requirements for one to 
become a freshman 
cheerleader are the same as 
for a sophomore, junior, or 
senior. You should have a 2.0 
overall grade point average, 
and be willing to share some of 
your time and talent 

Here at Northwestern you 
can be a full-time cheerleader 
and a freshman at the same 
time. You have an opportunity 
to get a full-time scholarship 

which amounts to $500 a year 
or you may be an alternate 
and receive $250 a year. 

Tryouts are held during the 
spring and there are no 
favorites. You are not looked 
upon as a freshman; you are 
looked upon as another person 
trying out for Northwestern 's 
cheerleading squad. 

You attend summer camp 
with the squad and share the 
same experiences. It is truly 
an honor. The best thing one 
would say about being a fresh- 
man cheerleader is that you 
get to know the people at 
Northwestern and share your

percent) considered, 
"Becoming an authority in 
one's field" as the number one 
objective of college life. 

We Americans have always 
defined ourselves as 
pragmatic and our foreign 
friends usually agree, so I 
suppose that we would expect 
that wanting to excel in our 
field would be considered 
essential in one's life plan. 

What intrigued me, as a 
priest, were the next two 
categories of objectives listed 
as very important for college 
entrants. "Helping others who 
are in difficulty" (63 percent) 
and "developing a philosophy 
of life" (61 percent) 
represented the next two 
highest categories. 

We've come a long way 
since the sixties when the 
over-30 crowd looked at the 
college generation with high 
suspicion, if not down-right 
hostility. But, I bet most 
middleaged citizens would be 
surprised and delighted to see 
such good evidence of 

altruism and common sense in 
the younger generation. 
Wishing to develop a 
philosophy of life is certainly a 
mature objective, and the 

215,890 students who were 
served were freshmen ! 

Life philosophies by 
definition must come to grips 
with religious questions. But if 
"religious questions" are only 
narrowly conceived as rule- 
making about day-to-day 
personal morality, then 

religion is emasculated and 
high role is ignored 

College life is secula 
because our national cull 
secularized. This means

Courses Revised 

Course changes in the 
division of Aviation Science 
under the Department of 
General Studies have been 
made effective this semester, 
according to Larry Varnado, 
chief flight instructor. 

Several courses have been 
added, including a private 
pilot ground instruction class 
which studies the use of flight 
computers and basic radio 
naviation. Also added was a 
multi-engine flight instructor 

course, involving the analysis 
of multi-engine procedures. 
There is a lab with this class, 
called multi-engine flight 
instructor flying, which 
provides the student with 
instruction and flight training 
in preparation for the "FAA 
Multi-Engine Flight In-

1. Do not roll the keg down a hill before attempting to 
tap it. 

2. Do not pump in too much pressure after tapping. This can

Internship results in job 

Bv Donna Sc honfpld 

By Donna Schonfeld 

A summer internship with a national 
magazine in New York City would be an 
exciting challenge for almost any journalism 
student. Senior Denise Lewis accepted this 
challenge and as a result, she will have a full- 
time job after she graduates in December. 

Ms. Lewis participated in an editorial in- 
ternship program with "Essence Magazine" 
from June 10 to August 19 this year. The 
magazine internship program has been 
sponsored each summer since 1967 by the 
American Society of Magazine Editors and 
the Magazine Publishers Association. 

Ms. Lewis explained that she was selected 
for the program after submitting copies of her 
writing, editing, and headlines to the 
Association. She was notified last May that 
she had been assigned to "Essence" 

Advertised as The Magazine for Today's 
Black Woman," ' Essence" is geared toward 
women between the ages of 18 and 34. Ms. 
Lewis described the magazine as a 'cross 
between "Glamour" and "McCall's." 

According to Ms. Lewis, "Essence" has a 
total staff of 50 persons including the ten 
members of the editorial staff. Marsha 
Gillespi is editor-in-chief and Nanine 
Alexander is managing editor. 

Ms. Lewis explained that most of the ar- 
ticles which appear in "Essence" are con- 
tributed by outside writers. As a result, staff 
members do a great deal of research work to 
check the facts in the articles. Ms. Lewis' first 
assignment was to research an article en- 
titled "Reverse Migration." The article dealt 
with the large number of blacks who are 
returning to the South. 

Denise Lewis (center) receives her 
graduation certificate from Ruth 
Whitney (right) president of the 
American Society of Magazine 
Editors (ASME), and editor of 
GLAMOUR: and Nanine Alexander, 

managing editor, ESSENCE. Ms. 
Lewis spent her summer working at 
ESSENCE, under the auspices of the 
1977 Magazine Internship Program, 
sponsored by ASME with a grant 
from the Magazine Publishers 
Association (MPA).

During her fifth week on the job, Ms. Lewis 
was placed on the magazine's production 
schedule. She edited some articles with a 
deadline and worked with the copy editor. 

According to Ms. Lewis, one of her most 
interesting assignments was the day she went 
on location with the magazine's Fashion 
Department and camera crew to shoot the 
cover for the October issue. 

"It was really interesting to see how the 
photographers used reflectors to get different 
effects," Ms. Lewis commented. "We left the 
office at 11 a.m., went to Central Park first, 
then to another park, and we didn't get back 
to the office until 6 p.m." 

When asked how she enjoyed living in New 
York, Ms. Lewis replied, "I liked it. It's fast 
and there are so many things to do." She 
attended several outdoor concerts in Central 
Park and saw various plays including "The 
Wiz" and "The Fantastiks." 

"I saw a lot of movies, too," Ms. Lewis 
explained. "I saw "New York, New York" 
only several nights after its premier." 

Ms. Lewis lived in the dormitory at New 
York University during her stay in the city. 
"The majority of the students living in the 
dorm were interning for the summer, so I met 
many people from all over the country," she 

The July power blackout in New York 
provided a unique opportunity for Ms. Lewis to 
get acquainted with her dormitory neighbors. 

"No one was scared," Ms. Lewis remarked. 
"We got to know everyone in the dorm that 
day and we got into some philosophical 
discussions. We were having a party when the 
lights came back on." 

Ms. Lewis stated that all of the people she 
met in the magazine office and in connection 
with her work were friendly. But she sai that 
in general, people in New York City have a 
"cold unconcerned attitude about 

The perfect end to an exciting summer 
came when the managing editor of 
"Essence" offered Ms. Lewis a permanent 
position as an assistant editor with the 

"The week before the offer came, I had 
written cutlines for pictures, titles for stories, 
and worked with the copy editor," Ms. Lewis 
explained. "I guess they were testing me that 
week. I was still surprised when she offered 
me the job." 

It didn't take long, however, for Ms. Lewis 
to make up her mind. "She offered me the job 
on Friday and I accepted on Monday," Ms. 
Lewis remarked. 

In the movie "New York, New York " Liza 
Minelli proclaimes her feelings for the city 
with the song lyrics, "If I can make it there, 
I'll make it anywhere... I want to be a part of it 
— New York, New York." 

Ms. Lewis seems to understand those 
sentiments quite well. 

"My biggest concern now is going back and 
finding a place to stay," said Ms. Lewis. "I'm 
looking forward to living there on a per- 
manent basis and to the experience I'll get on 
the magazine."

Is varsity level volleyball lost to NSU? 

It is not only a possibility, but a probability, according to 
Dr. Dan Carr, chairman of the NSU Athletic Council. 

The NSU women participate in four sports: basketball 
Volleyball, Tennis and Badminton. This is in accordance with 
the state's Title IX program which says all state institutions 
must develop a women's athletic program. 

What does this have to do with the volleyball program? 

Everything. When this program first came out, other scho- 
ols in the state emphasized either one sport or another; how- 
ever, NSU attempted to schedule for quantity instead of 
quality. Therefore, the women's program finds itself in a 
bind and volleyball seems the most likely sport to go due to 
a number of problems in the volleyball program. 


Volleyball has many . Attendance at volleyball tournaments 
is low, giving the impression that students do not like volle- 
yball or simply do not care. There are also coaching prob- 
lems involved. The position of volleyball coach was open but 
few applied and no one was hired; instead, two graduate 
assistants were employed. 

Financing is also a major problem. Transportation, 
uniforms equipment — all these costs money. With weak 
student backing are the costs worth it? 

Then there is the availability of participants. Most north 
Louisiana schools simply do not play volleyball; they con- 
centrate in other areas such as basketball and tennis. In 
order to play against good competition the team must travel 
to South Louisiana and play powerhouses such as LSU and 

Recruiting is also a problem. In order to acquire really top 
notch athletes recruiting must be done not only in Louisiana 
and Texas but also as far away as California. 

So the Athletic Council recommended that next year 
volleyball be dropped from the varsity to the club level. 

On club level the team will be able to compete but will not 
receive any university or state money. All the scholarships 
will be cut and if the girls really want to go to a tournament 
then they must raise the money themselves. 

Dr. Carr said, "We must look strongly at four factors, what 
programs are the other institutions offering; what is the 
availability of athletes in a particular sport; what are the 
cost factors: and how will scholarships be obtained? We 
simply could not continue to operate by keeping up in all the 

So, something's got to go. It is a sad but true fact that 
sometimes the funding is not there even if the project is 
worthwhile. If anyone has any questions, comments or 
suggestions they can be directed to Dr. Carr. 

As he said, "We need to work for quality, not quantity." 


The powerful tennis team 
kept their undefeated string 
unbroken as they swept the 
Northeast Indians off the 
courts Saturday by a 6-1 tally. 

The only loss of the day for 
the Demon netters was in No. 
1 singles where NLU's Jan 
Buise defeated Jose deCamino 
in a closely contested 4-6, 6-2, I

The win gave NSU a 4-0

Preserve record on home turf 

Demons defeat hapless Indians 

The NSU "Tasmanian 
Devil" defense once again 
rose to the occasion as they 
held the Northeast Indians 
scoreless and the offense 
generated enough points for a 
13-0 win at Homecoming 
Saturday night. 

The Demon offense rolled up 
350 yards in total offense but 
most of it was between the two 
twenties as the NLU defense 
held tougher than expected in 
their own territory. Running 
jor a large part of the 350 
yards was Mark Schroeder 
who rushed for a career high 
: 1 20 yards on 23 carries. 

The games only touchdown 
came with 3:42 remaining 
when quarterback Kenny 
Philibert sneaked across the 
goal line from one yard out. 

But it was the strong leg of 
kicker Dennis Pendergraft 
that scored more than anyone 
else. Pendergraft booted a 21 
yard field goal in the second 
quarter, a 27 yard field goal 
with 3:06 remaining in the 
game, and the junior was 
setting up for another attempt 
when time ran out. 

The Indians had quar- 
terback problems most of the 
night with starter Bud 

Cespivea seeing only brief 
action. NLU coach John David 
Crow tried to fill the signal- 
caller position with two other 
players but they were largely 

ineffective. Northeast com- 
pleted only five of 12 passes 
for the night with three getting 
picked off by the Demons. 

One of those interceptions 
midway through the fourth 
quarter set up the NSU touch- 
down. The interception by 
Stanley Lee was returned to 
the Demon 32 and NSU struck 
paydirt 68 yards and 11 plays 


NSU's defense^ 

the 'Tasmanian Devils 9 

Northwestern State 
University's defensive foot- 
ball unit has held opponents to 
only one touchdown in each of 
the Demons' past three 
games, a performance that 
has earned the unit the 
nickname "Tasmanian 

The nickname was coined 
by NSU head football coach A. 
L. Williams during the middle 
of workouts prior to the 20-6 
victory over Stephen F. 
Austin. "Our defense has been 
performing like a bunch of 
Tasmanian Devils ever since 
the Arkansas State game," 
Williams said at the time, 
"and I hope they keep it up." 

The nickname has stuck and 
is rapidly becoming a symbol 
for the effectiveness of the 
NSU defense. 

The name itself gives the 
mage of ferocity. The real 
Tasmanian "Devil" inhabits 
be island of Tasmania near 
Australia, where it lives in the 
iense underbrush. It 
esembles a small bear and is 
luite muscular, weighing in at 
■round 25 pounds. 

The amazing thing about the 
real "Devil" is its ferocity. 
Most are quite vicious and 
they will attack anything that 
moves, up to and including 
tigers and elephants. 

Their eating habits are also 
quite amazing. Tasmanian 
"Devils" are natural 
scavengers, consuming fur, 
feathers and bones, and feed 
on a great variety of animal 
food including sheep, chickens 
and the poisonous black tiger 

The Tasmanian "Devil" has 
perhaps become most famous 
through a cartoon character, 
though. "TAS", the cartoon 
version of the animal, is a 
regular on the Warner 
Brothers-Seven Arts cartoon 
series "Bugs Bunny." 

On these cartoons, "TAS" 
will again eat anything he can 
catch and is noted for bursting 
through walls and buildings in 
a constant whirlwind. A 
Warner Brothers-Seven Arts 
spokesman said that "TAS" 
has a personality that is 
somewhat nil, and that the 
only words the character 

speaks are a succession of 
growls and snarls. 

"It's almost a perfect 
description for our defense," 
said Williams. "They pride 
themselves on being mean and 
vicious, and I didn't 
think we could find an 
animal any meaner than this 

The "Tasmanian Devil" 
defense forced five fumbles 
and recovered four during 
NSU's 30-7 win over Arkansas 
State three weeks ago and 
held Stephen F. Austin to only 
a first-period touchdown. 

Three times they held the 
Lumberjacks inside the NSU 
20-yard line, once stopping 
them four times inside the 

"We've been getting a good 
defensive performance all 
season," said Williams, "but 
in our first two games our 
offense was erratic for the 
most part and put our defense 
in bad field position. We've 
been winning the battle of field 
position during the past two 
weeks, so we've been having a 
good defensive showing."

Whitewater canoeing 
more than a course 

NSU's Whitewater canoeing 
course is more than just 
another PE course, according 
to instructor Jim Simmons. 

"It's you and me together 
against nature," said Sim- 
mons, "and it really brings 
people closer together." 

The course includes not only 
paddling around area lakes 
but an annual canoeing trip to 
the Big Piney River in 

The river, which is 350 miles 
from Natchitoches and 
located in Longpool National 
Forest, has rapids ranging 
from "easy" to "in- 

The class has been taking 
the annual trip for the past 14 
years. Before they have a go 
at the Big Piney, however, 
they practice specialized 
boating technique and the 
English Gate System. This 
system consists of 
maneuvering a canoe through 
floats spaced so as to make 
snaking around them difficult. 

According to Simmons, one 
should have a basic canoeing 
background before attempting 
the Whitewater course. "Many 
people are injured in 
Whitewater canoeing merely 
because they don't know what 
they are doing." reports 

Simmons, who was raised in 
Arkansas, has been canoeing 
for 20 years. He attributes his 
interest in the sport to natures 

beauty. "To really see the 
outdoors," he enthusiastically 
states, "you should see it from 
a river." 
"People farther north are 

really surprised that we have 
a Whitewater course this far 
south because it is so far to the 
nearest Whitewater river." 
said Simmons.

produced the 1976 rodeo which 
attracted more than 2,200 for 
the two performances. 

Sam Misuraca, advisor to 
the Agriculture Club said that 

"It has been quite successful 
in the past. Last year was the 

first year that it was held in

Fair and it was very suc- 
cessful. We expect it to be just 
as successful this year." 

Once again this fall the 
Intergrity Club offers a series 
of meetings, this time devoted 
to developing a different 
perception of what we ap- 
preciate and express in our 
music and the fine arts. 

Speakers from Integrity 
groups in Denton, Texas, 
Shreveport, Baton Rouge, and 
Natchitoches will be with us to , 
share in a new awareness of 
the meaning and design of art 
and music. 

Meetings will be on Thur- 
sday evenings at 8 o'clock all 
but the last in Williamson 
Hall, Room 108 (Earth Science 
Building). The Nov. 17

history article 

Dr. James L. McCorkle of 
the NSU social studies faculty 
has recently published two 
articles relating to the 
agricultural history of the 

The articles are "The 
Illinois Central Railroad and 
the Mississippi Commercial 
Vegetable Industry" for the 
Journal of Mississippi History 
and "Louisiana and the Cotton 
Crisis, 1914," for Louisiana 

According to McCorkle, 
certain areas of Mississippi 
were deeply involved in the 
export of fresh vegetables to 
northern urban markets from 
the 1870's to the mid-20th 

"Vital for the success of this 
business," he writes in the 
current issue of the Journal 
for Mississippi History, "was 
ready access to fast and 
reliable railroad transportati- 

on." In the article, McCorkle' 
surveys the crucial 
relationship between the. 
Illinois Central Railroad and 
the Mississippi vegetable' 
interests, a relationship the 
author says contained 1 
elements of antagonism as 
well as mutual benefit. 

McCorkle's article in 
Louisiana History is an 
analysis of the efforts made by 
Louisianians and other 
southerners to deal with the 
brief but disturbing cotton 
marketing crisis. "The out.

Leonard explores 
holistic health 

LEONARD FORUM— Following his lecture, George Leonard 
presented a question and answer forum last week in the Arts 
and Sciences auditorium. Leonard suggested that NSU sponsor 
a fitness day in which all students and faculty would walk to 
classes instead of driving. 

A new movement that originated in 
California, "Holistic Health", was the 
theme of a lecture given by George 

in the Fine Arts Auditorium, on 
October 4 at 9:30 a. m. Leonard was the 
second speaker in NSU's Distinguished 
Lecturer Series for this semester. 

Mr. Leonard said that he was a 
generalist, or "one who knows less and 
less about more and more." 

According to Mr. Leonard, Holistic 
Health is about exceptional good health 
and the kind of society needed to help 
obtain good health. 

Mr. Leonard said that the average 
person usually thinks of health and 
sickness as not his responsibility, but 
that "it is you, not your doctor, who is 
primarily responsible for your health." 

Mr. Leonard said there is a plague of 
environmental cancer from the 
pollution put out by industries, 
automobiles, and toxic substances. In 
one of his books, Mr. Leonard proposed 
a heat tax on energy consumption as a 
possible solution for industrial wastes 
and pollution.

dream sequence, according to Ray 
Schexnider, associate professor of 

The dream sequence was filmed last 
week and will be incorporated in one 
point in the script in which a main 
character has a dream. Schexnider 
explained that this will be the first time 
a filmed sequence has been used in an 
NSU play. 

Those involved in the shooting of the 

16 millimenter film included Tommy 
Whitehead, director of instructional t 
elevision, Don Sepulvado, supervisor of 
photography, and Paul Keyser, 
technical director. 

"Knots" is the title which has been

Mr. Leonard stated that $10 billion is 
spent yearly on back care, and $4.5 
billion is spent on side effects from 
drugs. He said that if something isn't 
done, health care will soon be obtaining 
20 per cent of the country's money. 

According to Mr. Leonard, a tran- 
sformed lifestyle is needed, with less 

wasting, more enjoyment and 
creativity, and a more dignified ap- 
proach to dying. Mr. Leonard said that 
there is a "wide-awake feeling with 
being healthy." He stated that we 
should unify body, mind, and spirit

Reunion scheduled 

A day-long reunion of persons who 
attended NSU 50 years ago will be 
planned for Oct. 15 in conjunction with 
NSU's football game against Lamar 

The reunion is expected to bring 
together more than 100 alumni who 
attended Northwestern — or Louisiana 
Normal as it was then known — in the 
1920's. The last time a 50-year reunion 
was held at NSU was in November of 

Dr. Jolly Harper, a Methodist 
minister who lives in Natchitoches, is 
coordinating the 50-year reunion for 
persons who attended NSU before 1927. 
He is being assisted by four other 
alumni from the 1920's — Mrs. Tom 
Baker, Mrs. Frances Gardey, Mrs. Jeff 

DeBlieux and Bert Boyd. 

The program is scheduled to begin 
with registration and a reception in the 
Student Union at 10 a. m. to be followed 
at 12:30 p. m. with a banquet in the 
Student Union Ballroom. 

Alumni returning for the reunion will 
be given guided tours of the campus, 
allowing them to see how the university 
has blended some of the old Louisiana 
Normal with the new Northwestern. 
Special tours of historic Natchitoches 
are also included in the program's 

Participants in the 50-year reunion 
will be guests of the university when 
NSU plays Lamar University of 
Beaumont, Tex., in 16,000-seat Harry 
"Rags" Turpin Stadium at 7:30 p. m. 

"The reunion we had two years ago," 
said Harper, "was a tremendous 
success. We had 100 attend our last one, 
and this year we are expecting an even 
greater number. Several of our alumni 
who were great athletes and student 
body leaders 50 years ago have assured 
me they will be returning for our 

Harper stated that anyone who at- 
tended NSU in 1927 or before is en- 
couraged to attend. 

He said reservations to attend the

Banquet tickets are $6 each. 

Demon band to receive 
new uniforms 

STATE FAIR QUEEN — Bonnie Outlaw was chosen last week 
as State Queen out of a field of 18 contestants. Members of the 
State Fair Court include: Lisa Breazeale, Rhonda Baham, 
Candi Hart, Julie Hatch, Jo Julian, Debbie Page, Trina Drake 
and Darleen Damico. 

Dischler, Lee Ann Blaufass, Vicki 
Williams, Karen Carr, Janice Rogers, 
Shirley Acy, Christolyn Turner, Laura 

Wilson, Maggie Horton, Judy Foster, 
Vicki Bordelon, Monica Smith, Mary 
Ann Gallien, and Debbie Nichols. 

During the day of preliminaries, the 
girls will have a three-minute in- 
terview, three minute talent presen- 
tation and swimsuit competition. 
Swims uit competition was added this 
year for the first time. Darlene Damico 
said, "It will give the girls a chance to 
do the swimsuit competition before the 
actual pageant and it will give the 
judges something extra to judge the 
girls on." 

Some of the talent for that day will 
include toe dancing, singing, jazz 
dancing, instrumental playing, in- 
terpretations, gymnastics and art 

Val Scarbro, who is in charge of 
obtaining judges for the pageant, said 
the following people will judge for 
preliminaries: Mrs. Johnny Kemper, 
Shreveport; Mr. Robert Ammons, 
Many; Connie Ammons, Many; Mr. E. 
H. Gilson, Shreveport; Mr. Burton 
Weaver Jr., Flora; and standby judge, 
Danny Seymore, Natchioches. 

The girls had their first practice 
Wednesday, October 5, and will be 
having many more before October 15. 

The 150 Club has been organized at 
NSU for the purpose of securing con- 
tributions of $150 each from 150 sources 
to provide the funds needed to purchase 
new band uniforms. 

The idea for the club originated with 
President-elect Dr. Rene Bienvenu who 
also became the first member of the 
organization. Dr. J. Robert Smith, 
chairman of the department of music, 
and Dr. E.O. Howell are heading the 
membershp drive. 

Dr. Smith said the contributions are 
being made to the Northwestern 
Foundation and are earmarked for the 
150 Club. He said more than 30 
donations have already been made 
through the 150 Club. 

The band booster organization was 
named The 150 Club because $150 is 
needed from 150 persons to provide 
funds for new uniforms for 150 band 

Flag thefts 

The flags will no longer fly over 
Harry "Rags" Turpin Stadium, the 
Student Union or Natchitoches, at least 
not until such time as the 25 flags which 
disappeared Homecoming Day are 

The Demon Booster Club recently 
purchased 100 purple, orange and white 
banners at a cost of $15 apiece and 
presented the items to Northwestern. In 
return for this g gesture, Northwestern 
students, among other culprits, walked 
away with a number of the banners. 

The CURRENT SAUCE has been 
notified by the Office of External Af- 
fairs that persons returning flags prior 
to Oct. 27 will be asked no questions. 
Any person caught, in the future, 
removing a flag with the intention of 
making it his personal property 
(stealing) will be dealt with according 
to the law. 

The Northwestern Demon Marching 
Band, which had a membership of more 
than 170 in the late 1960's, now has 50 
instrumentalists, but Smith said 50 
freshman band members will be added 
in each of the next two years to bring 
the band to a 150-member marching 

Smith said, "The uniforms that we 
are currently wearing were purchased 
in 1966. They are worn out and no longer 
conform with the styles of con- 
temporary band uniforms. At this time, 
we do not even have enough usable 
uniforms to accomodate the small 
marching unit which we have." 

The campaign for community funds 
was organized, according to Dr. Smith, 
because appropriations for new 
uniforms are not included in the current 
music department budget, and the 
uniforms could not be obtained through 
regular budgetary procedures prior to 


Dr. Smith said Dr. Bienvenu, in 
proposing the establishment of the 150 
Club, also pointed out that the purchase

The Demon Booster Club 
recently purchased 100 
orange, purple and white flags 
at a cost of $15 apiece to be 
displayed at Northwestern' s 
home games. 

It seems that students don't 
appreciate the gesture very 
much as at least 25 of the 
banners have not been 
recovered from the 
Homecoming weekend. The 
notified that any person ap- 
prehended in the future with a 
flag or caught in the process of 
"ripping one off," will be 
treated like any other person 
who steals. 

It is a shame that any 
person would just take it upon 
himself to walk off with 
someone else's property. Do 
students at Northwesern wish 
to be treated like the adults 
they are or would they prefer 
to be treated as children? 

If we students cannot be 
trusted with such an item as a 
flag, why should the ad- 
ministration trust us with such 
a responsibility; what in- 
dication does the ad- 
ministration see that we can 
handle more serious 

Childish behavior on our 
part will result, as it has in the 
past, in limitations in the 
responsibilities and privileges 
we would have. 

Grow up. If one can't handle 
responsibilities now how does 
one expect to handle the 
responsibilities of a job, 
family, etc.?

Dear Editor: 

Student support for Nor- 
thwestern football this season 
has been overwhelming, and I 
would like to express my 
heartfelt appreciation to our 
entire student body not only 
for rallying around the foot- 
ball program but also for the 
renewed snese of school spirit 
that prevails across the 

Frankly, members of the 
coaching staff and the football 
team attribute much of our 
success thus far this season to 
what has been the most en- 
couraging display of student 
support for athletics at North- 
western in years. 

And my pride in the student 
body goes beyond the ob-

Kids not as happy 

More than a third of U. S. 
parents believe they enjoyed a 
happier childhood than their 
children are experiencing, a 
new study shows. "Parents 
clearly have some doubts 
about the happiness of their 
children today," said the 
study sponsored by General 
Mills, Inc. and conducted by 
the polling firm of 
Yankelovich, Skelly & White, 

In the study of 1,230 U. S. 
households, 37 percent of all 
parents felt children today are 
not as happy as when the 
parents were children. Sixteen 
percent felt today's youth are 
happier, 46 percent felt there 
was no difference, and one 
percent did not know. 

In trying to analyze the 
findings, Dr. John Conger, 
professor of clinical 
psychology at the University 
of Colorado School of 
Medicine, said, "When these 
parents were adolescents, life 
was in many ways simpler, 
more innocent, more 
predictable, and less riddled 
with social conflicts." In 
contrast, today's youth have 
seen racial strife, rioting, bu- 
rning in the cities 
assassinations, deep divisions 
over Vietnam, political 
corruption, and Watergate." 

Could it possibly be that 
today the world is holding up 
godless standards to the 
youth? For example, we hear 









our parents tell us: get a 
better education, go to college 
so you can get a better job that 
pays better so you can get all 
the 'things' you want — rather 
than the Biblical pattern of 
getting an education to 
sharpen the 'tools' God has 
given us to glorify Him and 
help our brothers. 

The only true source of joy 
then must be found outside of 
ourselves. This means 
believers in Jesus Christ are 
free from the false and 
damnable notion that keeping 
the Law, which is impossible 
to begin with, is a way of 
getting on right terms with 

By freeing us from the 
heresy Christ rooted out of our 
hearts the two common false 
reasons for trying to be 

law-abiding, namely, fear of 
punishment and the hope of a 
reward. There is no punish- 
ment to fear since Christ bore 
our punishment for us. (Gal. 

Freedom from the Law 
leaves us with the one and only 
right reason for serving God 
and people — love. "We love, 
because he first loved us.. He 
who loves God should love his 
brother also". (I John 4:19, 

In God's love, you will find 
everlasting happiness!

Readers comment 

on volleyball, CODIFIL 

Dear Editor: 

I would like to reply to Dr. 
Carr's article concerning the 
possible annihilation of the 
NSU woman's volleyball 
team. I would like to have my 
reply publicized since similar 
arguments have previously 
been presented to Dr. Carr 
with little or no positive 

One of the reasons given for 
termination of the volleyball 
program was lack of spec- 
tators present at volleyball 
matches. As a past member of 
both the volleyball team and 
the tennis team, I am qualified 
to state that attendance is 
greater at volleyball matches 
than at the tennis matches. I 
feel that this argument 
against the volleyball 
program is thereby invalid. 

The reported lack of funds 
necessary to support the 
volleyball team is also a myth. 
The number of scholarships 
alloted to the volleyball team 
is in the area of four full 
tuition scholarships which are 
divided among the volleyball 
team members. The football 
team is reported to have in the 
neighborhood of 70 such 
scholarships alloted to their 
use. As for the expense in- 
curred in the recruiting of 
"quality players" from such 
distant places as California, 
the team members com- 
prising the volleyball team for 
the past three years have been 
Louisiana residents and these 
girls have captured one of the 
top three places in the state 
playoffs. Several of the team 
members participating in the 
program for the past three 
years have not been on 

The statement was made 
that most Louisiana colleges 
do not have women's 
volleyball programs. As of 
last year, both Louisiana Tech 
and Northeast sponsored a 
volleyball team. 

It is my personal conviction 
that the decision for termin- 
ation of the volleyball team 
was a product of the biased 
influence of the previous 
coach. While coach, she was 
totally disinterested in 
volleyball and the only in- 
fluence she had on the team 
and the program as a whole 
was detrimental. She was not 
genuinely concerned with the 
sport of volleyball and her 
apathy possibly influenced the 
Athletic Council in their 
decision to eliminate 
volleyball from the athletic 
program. The players 
evidenced their concern over 
the gradually deteriorating 
situation to the proper 
authorities, but no action was 
ever taken in response to their 
frequent complaints, s- 
uggestions or pleas. 

The future in volleyball is in 
the hands of those people 
currently involved in or 
acquainted with the sport The 
future teachers and coaches 
will be robbed of an important 
element of their education if 
the volleyball team is 

I feel that these facts and 
opinions should be aired to the 

public in hopes of possibly 
reviving the sport on campus 
and thereby influencing the 
Athletic Council to amend 
their decision to terminate the 
volleyball program. 

Gwen M. Teekell 

No, the volleyball team does 
not lack quality— but then the 
athletic council would not 
know unless they came to a

Dear Editor: 

I would like to respond to an 
article in the Current Sauce of 
October 4, 1977. In an article 
quoting Dr. Carr, there was a 
statement about the NSU 
Varsity Volleyball team 
concerning quality vs quan- 
tity. Obviously this statement 
was premature! I have been 
working with the volleyball 
team for weeks, and I can 
assure ANYONE that our is a 
team of QUALITY! 

Last night NSU held a round 
robin tournament hosting 
LSU, USL, and NLU. I sat in 
awe as I saw six fine athletes, 
disguised as beautiful women, 
field spiked balls (which are 
know to reach up to 100 mph) 
set from off-balanced 
positions, and then spike the 
ball back at the opposition. I 
was part of a large number of 
people watching the Lady 
Demons in a tremendous show 
of strength, skill, daring, and 
finnesse. I (and others) 
gripped our seats as we saw 
one of Janan's well placed 
dinks drop on the oppositions 
floor; we winced as did the 
defense as Sheila slammed a 
spike down at them; we 
screamed as Dore dove on the 
ball making another 
tremendous save; and I have 
never seen so much ex- 
citement when we were 
treated to successive volleys 
consisting of hard spikes and 
diving saves. 

The team had no feelings of 
loss as they went down to LSU. 
Our women played superb 
volleyball against tough 

The only problems holding 
back the team from getting 
spectator support are a lack of 
publicity (the team had to 
handle it) and poor facilities 
(the PE Major's building has 
no bleachers causing very 
cramped quarters for both the 
players and the spectators.)

letter was printed in the 
Natchitoches Times and then 
forwarded to the CURRENT 
SAUCE by the writer.) 
To the Editor: 

The statements referred to 
in your recent editorial, 
"Remarks Shock Com- 
munity," do not show a sense 
of responsibility nor of 
maturity one would expect 
from a speaker at any 
gathering much less one of 
young people who are sin- 
cerely searching for direction 
in their lives. It is not hard to 
notice that people who have 
deep faith in God or His 
teachings through 
Christianity or other means, 
have a sense of peace or 
happiness that makes one 
wish that he or she could 
capture that same secret of 

I have never forgotten an 
incident in my early twenties, 
when it was customary for 
southerners, after graduation, 
to spend a winter or a month 
or two in New York. It hap- 
pened that we had met Mac, a 
very able young lawyer on 
shipboard. He could be 
counted upon to take each girl 
from back home out to dinner 
or dancing on these visits. 

This is what Mac related to 
me after one such visit: It was 
Sunday and he asked his date, 
"Aren't you going to your 
church before we have din- 
ner?" "No," she said. "I 
haven't been for the past year. 
You remember we had a 
discussion when I was here 
last year and you won. I've 
lost my faith." "Ever since 
then," Mac told me, 
"regardless of how I think, I 
never disparage anyone's 
faith or religion. It is such an 
enviable thing to have. 
Discussion, O. K., but 
disparagement, No. I'll never 
do it again." 

One more comment: I was 
very impressed at the meeting 
of an interfaith group a few 
years later when some very 
practical and intelligent men 

and women were present. 
One, an advertising director, 
spoke when his turn came. If 
we follow the guidance of the 
laws of God and Christianity « 
we can find the answer to ly 
living. It is like a stranger to * 
civilization who has never ju 
used a can-opener. He tries a $ 
variety of tools: a knife, i ^ 
corkscrew, a hammer, bu, f 
they do not work. Then he uses s 
the can-opener. It did the job. f 
He concluded, therefore, that f 
it was the key to his problem 
of securing what he needed 
from the can. In life, he said,., 
we try everything and then get p 
finally to the thing that works: , • 
faith in God and Christianity.

From the Sideline 

Williams commends students 

(Ed's note: "From the Sidelines" is an 
addition to our regular features. It is a 
column of personal opinion written by John 
McKellar on the subject of professional 

With the tides of the Demons at a high ebb, 
it is time to turn our attention to the world of 
professional football. Pre-season picks are a 
dime a dozen with every magazine and 
newspaper giving their annual expertise that 
usually is not so expertise. 

With four games played in the season 
already, we can hardly qualify as a pre- 
season prediction, but here goes a hard look 
at the NFL. 

AFC EAST — This division probably has the 
best young teams in the league. What more 
can be said of Bert Jones, who is the best 
quarterback of any age in the NFL. He is the 
type of player whom you build franchises 
around, who can make it happen at any time. 
However, the Baltimore Colt defense is 
suspect. They have a lot of talented individu- 
als as such, but they have a tendency to break 
when the pressure is on. 

New England, under Coach Chuck Fair- 
banks, has successfully completed a 
rebuilding program that saw its first results 
last season with a wild-card berth. They are 
solid all over and play with extreme en- 

Buffalo, despite 0. J. Simpson, will be an 
also ran, and Miami is still one year away 
from regaining their old prestige. However, 
you better always keep an eye on a Don Shula 

This division race will not be decided until 
the final game of the season. Even with their 
slow start, I pick New England to win, with 
Baltimore grabbing the wild-card berth to get 
into the playoffs. 

— All four of the teams could win in any other 
division in football, but having to play each 
other twice they knock each other out of the 
wild-card berth. Pittsburgh has lost their 
hunger from two years ago, but they still have 
too much defense for anybody but Oakland. 
Cincinnati is the most overrated team in 
football; this season will tell on them. 
Cleveland is the most improved in football, 
and if someone doesn't tell Coach Forrest 
Gregg and Company that they are playing 
over their heads, they could be contenders. 
Houston is tough, but in this division not tough 

Look for Pittsburgh to win comfortably by 
two games. 

AFC WEST — All that needs be said is 
Oakland Raiders. This team has no apparent 
weaknesses. And after finally winning the big 
one, their mental attitude matches their 
ability. All the rest of the teams have im- 
proved slightly, but none can stand up to the 
Raiders. Look for them to win by four games 

or more in the easiest division win in football. 
NFC EAST — This is the toughest division in 
the NFC, but that does not say much. 
Washington, St. Louis and Dallas should have 
another dog fight for the top spot, with one of 
the other two taking the NFC wild card. 
George Allen keeps coming up with Geritol 
and the Redskins keep playing like they did 
five years ago. They are tough at home and 
even tougher in big games. St. Louis, despite 
offensive problems, will be tough when they 
get together. Look for late season im- 

The Dallas Cowboys have the best 
organization in football the best coaching and 
host the best defense. 

Harvey Martin and the crew have finally 
arrived. Tony Dorsett has shown flashes of 
brilliance, but he is still two years away from 
the superstardom that he will achieve. The 
hapless New York Giants are continuing with 
their rebuilding and are still years away from 

Look for Dallas to win the division as usual, 
with Washington to take the wild-card. 
NFC CENTRAL — Despite rumors of 
crumble, the Minnesota Vikings are the 
cream of this motley crop. Chicago, highly 
touted in pre-season as the heir apparent to 
the Vikings' crown. Detroit is tougher, but not 
enough. Hopefully Tampa Bay will finally win 
their first game, but playing in this division 
it's almost a cinch Minnesota will win easily. 
NFC WEST — This is the weakest division in 
football. The Little Sisters of the Poor could 
go .500 here. The New Orleans Saints begin 
another of their perennial rebuilding years; 
they will receive the same results as always. 
Someone needs to give Hank Stram a book on 
coaching psychology; you don't pick an old 
mule to win the Kentucky Derby. 

The Los Angeles Rams made the worst 
move in history when they traded for Joe 
Namath. His magic is gone; his battered 
knees can take only so much. The Rams have 
a lot of talent, but they need a coaching 
change to rid themselves of the inertia the 
whole organization possesses. The Los 
Angeles Rams will lose the fewest games and 
gain this playoff berth. 

Well, a prediciton would not be complete 
without going all the way. Look for Oakland to 
win the AFC playoffs and return to the Super 
Bowl. On the other side, Dallas will sweep the 
NFC and gain the berth. In the Super Bowl, 
look for the Cowboys' enthusiasm and the 
coaching genius of Tom Landry to prevail as 
the Cowboys win by two touchdowns. 

All that can be done is to sit back and enjoy 
the football season. There will be many ex- 
citing moments, many heartbreaks, and 
many hours of argument and discussion over 
who did what and why. But then again, that's

It is important for you as 
students to know a bit about 
our philosophy of coaching. At 
the root of that philosophy is 
the belief that our team does 
not represent merely the

Dr. Rene Bienvenu was 
guest speaker at a Faculty 
Forum September 30 in the 
Student Union Ballroom 
where he stated, "I express 
extreme optimism for the 

According to Dr. Bienvenu, 
his goal as president of NSU 
will be to establish a high 
quality educational in- 
stitution. He said that NSU 
must give students the kind of 
education they expect, and re- 
establish an image in the 
outward community. 

Dr. Bienvenu said he 
believed that any university is 
based upon its strength 
primarily in liberal arts and 
sciences. However, Dr. 
Bienvenu believes that NSU 
should develop a good athletic 
program as well as an 
academic one. 

The needs of the faculty 
must be satisfied in order to 
get the kind of institution NSU 
will strive for, stated Dr. 
Bienvenu. He told the faculty 
that there are many other 

things that can be done to 
enhance NSU's image and 
enable everyone to enjoy their 
jobs more. 

Dr. Bienvenu said he felt 
that he was free to make 
honest decisions, and that he 
will make them only in the 
interest of NSU. Dr. Bienvenu 
said, "I have no personal gain 

to make." 

An open line of com- 
munication must be 
established, stated Dr. 
Bienvenu, and he asked for 
everyone's help, suggestions, 
and criticism. He also said, 
"We have all the necessary 
ingredients, but everyone 
must work together." 

6, 1 26 enrolled at NSU 

Northwestern's enrollment 
for the fall semester is 6,216, 
including 5,275 un- 
dergraduates and 941 students 
in the Graduate School. 

Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick, 
president of NSU, said the fall 
enrollment figure compares 
with a registration total of 
6,439 in the fall of 1976, but he 
said some 500 more students 
will enroll in second session 
continuing education classes. 

NSU director of continuing 
education Dr. Hoyt Reed said 
more than 250 students are 
expected to register for nine- 

week fall semester classes 
beginning in October at Fort 
Polk and that some 235 will 
enroll for second session 
courses at England Air Force 

Kilpatrick said Nor- 
thwestern's enrollment has 
"remained relatively stable 
during the 1970's. We have had 
increases and declines of 100 
to 200 students in the past 
several years, but our 
enrollment has stabilized and 
is slightly higher than a 5,947 
students which we had in 

Dr. Bienvenu said he could 
promise one thing, "We're 
going to have an institution 
that we can be proud of."

NSU is one of many in- 

stitutions of higher learning 
who nominate students for this 
honor. The number of students 
each school can nominate is 
deermined by the enrollment. 
They join an elite group of 

students selected from more 
than 1,000 institutions of 
higher learning in all 50 states, 
the District of Columbia and 
several foreign nations. 
The national office will send 

each student a form to fill out 
and return. Prompt com- 
pliance in filling out and 
returning this material will 
enable them to meet their 
publishing deadline. 

There are 2,732 men and 
3,484 women at NSU. 

Kilpatrick said the fresh- 
men enrollment of 2,695 "is 
particularly encouraging, 
because our new student 
enrollment has . 
remained stable for the pasl£ 
several years following somfrv 
declines — which related to i\ 
nationwide trend — in tb» 
early 1970's." 

Defaulted student loans 

will be collected 




FOR DETAILS 318-425-4211 

The job of collecting 
defaulted federally insured 
student loans will soon be 
placed in the hands of a 
private collection 
organization, the HEW Office 
of Education recently an- 

The Office of Education 
(OE) is soliciting proposals 
from organizations which 
have had nationwide ex- 
perience in collecting con- 
sumer loans and in tracing the 
whereabouts of defaulters. 

Noting that OE is exercising 
an authority provided by the 
Congress in the Education 
Amendments of 1976, Leo 
Kornfeld, Deputy Com- 
missioner for Student 
Financial Assistance, said the 
decision to use a private 
organization to collect 
defaults is "rooted in our firm 
conviction that those who are 
able but unwilling to pay their 
debts do a grave injustice to 
the American public who 
provided them with an op- 
portunity for education. 

"They do a serious 
disservice to the majority of 
former students who honor 
their obligations and 
jeopardize the futures of 
millions of students whose 
education aspirations hinge on 
the availability of these 
loans," he continued. 

Basically, the successful 
bidder for the contract will be 
required to locate defaulted 
borrowers, establish a 

payment schedule, and 
arrange for payments to be 
made to OE. Another part of 
the job will be to recommend 
measures OE should take — 
including legal action — on 
debts the organization is 
unable to collect. 

The contractor will receive 
no appropriated Federal 
funds. Instead, OE will pay 
the organization a percentage 
of the payments collected. 

The contract will apply only 
to the Federal Insured Student 
Loan Program (FISLP), 
under which the Federal 
Government has directly 

insured approximately one- 
half of all loans in the 
Guaranteed Student Loan 
Program. The rest have been 
guaranteed by one of 27 state 
or private nonprofit guarantee 
agencies. The Guaranteed 
Student Loan Program was 
authorized by the Higher 
Education Act of 1965. 

Only the contract 
organization's salaried per- 
sonnel may collect from 
student defaulters. Their 
efforts will supplement the 

mostly in HEW Regional 
Offices across the country 
Until now, OE employees 
had sole responsibility 
FISLP collections. Howeve 
for a number of years, 
guarantee agencies have 
private firms to collect 
defaulted loans.

Nicholls got a field goal 
from Glenn Magee and a 
touchdown pass in the second 
quarter that proved to be the 
margin of victory. It was only 
the Colonels second touch- 
down of the year. 

The Demons only score also 
came in the second quarter 
when David Wright 
culminated a 74 yard drive 
with a one yard run to paydirt 
Dennis Pendergraft's point 
after sailed wide left. 

The NSU "Tasmanian 
Devil" defense played 
valiantly as they stopped 
Nicholls for only one first 
down in the second half and 
only six the entire game. 

In comparison to the 
Colonels near-flawless effort, 
NSU gave the ball away four 
times on two interceptions and 
two fumbles. One of these 
interceptions resulted in the 
Colonels touchdown. 

T he closest NSU came after 
their initial score was to the 
Nicholls 14 yard line after a 43- 
yard romp by Mark 
Schroeder. However, an in- 
complete pass on fourth down 
ended that threat. 

The loss dropped the 
Demons to a 4-2 slate on the 
season. NSU's next home

Demon mascots announced 

By Bonnie Outlaw 
Last Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 4 
p. m. at the NSU Coliseum, 

something brand-new — but 
with a touch of tradition — 

WHO COULD THIS BE? — A typical Demon? 
Though Demon looks come and then change with 
the time, their basic function — to promote school 
spirit as an addition to the cheerleading squad — 
never changes. It has been a number of years 
since NSU has had an official mascot, much less 

Entertainers add talent 

was formed. The "Demon's 
Den," the unofficial mascot? 
with the NSU cheerleading 
squad, was announced. After a 
legitimate tryouts procedure 
in which both an interview 
evaluation and a skills 
evaluation were involved, a 
trio of men were chosen. 

The NSU cheerleaders think 
that the students will be 
pleased with the selection of 
these three fine college men. 
We extend our congratulations 
to Boo Boo, Tony, and Greg. 

Tony Hernandez, a fresh- 
man out of New Orleans was 
asked why he was trying out 
for the unofficial position of 
Demon Mascot. He replied 
that he enjoyed those types of 
activities. During the in- 
terview evaluation, Tony 
indicated that he had "a 
bunch" of spirit-promoting 
ideas that he would initiate. 
Tony delighted all with 
several new double-stunts. 

Greg Myers, a junior out of 
Shreveport, is also a mascot. 
Greg supported the idea that a 
mascot must possess en- 
thusiasm and energy, and be 
someone who could relate to 
the crowd. During Interview 
Evaluation one of the many 

questions that Greg's answer 
was rated on was: "What 
would be the role of the 
unofficial Demon Mascot?" 

Greg's reply: " emblem 
of spirit." Greg will add much 
with his crowd pleasing 
gymnastics ability. 

McCoy (Butch) "Boo Boo" 
Manuel, a freshman out of 
Bossier City, is also a mascot. 
"Boo Boo", as he is fondly 
referred to, was asked: "How 
would a Demon Mascot help 
the NSU Cheerleading ' 
squad?" Butch stated that 
mascots lead spirit — people 
would identify with the 

Cheerleaders and the team as 
THE Northwestern DEMONS, 
because of the actual mascot 
present. Previously a high 
school standout football 
player, Boo Boo surprised 
everyone with his versatility 
and stability with double 
stunts in the skills evaluation. 

All three gentlemen will be 
present for campus activities 
beginning with the pep rally to 
raise spirit for the Nor- 
thwestern-Lamar University 
game this week. Their 
responsibilities include double 
stunts, chants, and building 
Pyramids with the NSU 
Cheerleading squad at pep 
rallies and games. With this 
dynamite trio on hand, the 
cheerleaders will plan and 
offer the student body a 
variety of surprises in the 
future. After all, as our 1977 
theme states: "This IS The 
Year of Excitement!" 

"I am music, and I write the 
songs," can be heard floating 
serenly through the air when 
eleven NSU students who have 
been selected to perform with 
the NSU Entertainers, put it 
all together.

was named to another term as 
president of the NSU Foun- 

Re-elected during the 
Homecoming celebration, 
Mrs. Dial has been head of the 
NSU Alumni Association since 
last November. She is em- 
ployed by the American Bank 
and Trust Co., of Baton Rouge. 

Other Alumni Association 
officers elected were vice 
president C. M. McSwain, 
chemist for Cities Service Oil 
Company in Westlake, and 
executive secretary Dr. C. B. 
Ellis, assistant to the 
president and director of 
external affairs. 

Mrs. Dial and McSwain 
were also elected new 
members of the association's 
board of directors. Other 
members of the board includ 
William Sherman, Dr. Harold 
Denning, Daniel E. Sullivan, 
M. O. Webb, Raymond Arthur, 
and Parker Wiggins. 

McSwain, a 1943 Nor- 
thwestern graduate, suffered 
a fatal heart attack this 
weekend just hours after the 
university's Homecoming 
celebration. Ellis said a 
successor to McSwain, who 
has served several terms on 
the Alumni Association board 
of directors, will be selected 
later in the year. 

Ellis said, "C. M. McSwain 
was one of the most loyal 
supporters of Northwestern 
and of Louisiana education. 
This university has lost a 
cherished friend, and his 
service on the Alumni 
Association and NSU Foun- 
dation boards will be a great 
loss to Northwestern." 

During the annual meeting 
of the NSU Foundation last 
weekend, Dranguet was 
elected to his fifth term as 
president. Dranguet is 
executive vice president of the 
Exchange Bank and Trust Co. 
of Natchitoches.

Committee presentation of the 
Broadway musical hit "The Robber 
Bridegroom" Wednesday, October 26 at 
8 p.m. in the Fine Arts Auditorium. 

Produced by Tom Mallow and 
GordonCrow, well known Broadway 
producers, "The Robber Bridegroom" 
is an adaptation of a 1942 novella 
written by one of the nation's con- 
temporary Southern authors Eudora 

The musical relates the adventures of 
a Robin Hood-type character, Jamie 
Lockart, and his country cohorts on the 
Natchez Trace in Rodney, Mississippi 
circa 1795. 

Acclaimed by New York critics for its 
inventive staging, "The Robber 
Bridegroom" is directed by Bolen High 
and choreographed by Dennis Grimaldi 
(who choreographs NBC's Saturday 
Nite Live.) 

The book and lyrics were written by 
Alfred Uhry and the music was com- 
posed by Robert Walkman. 

Termed a "folky, homespun 
musical," "The Robber Bridegroom" 
won six New York Drama Desk Awards 
presented by the New York theater 
critics. Barry Bostick, who created the 
character Jamie Lockart on Broadway, 
won a Tony award this year for his

romantic intrigues the play has a cast

grass band called "Breakfast Special." 

Starring in the lead roles are Frank 
Luz as the rogue hero-Jamie Lockart, 
Barbara Marineau as Jami's romantic 
interes Rosamund; and Laurie Franks 
are the wicked stepmother. Two 
members of the original Broadway cast 
are featured in the musical— Trip 
Plymale playing Goat and Ernie 
Sabella playing Big Harp. 

"The Robber Bridegroom" fir-

received rave reviews from New York 
and Los Angeles theater critics who 
have described it as "sophisticated 

Blue Grass."

The music and Films Committee is 
sponsoring a movie marathon set for 
Saturday, October 29 from 7 p.m. to 2 
a.m. in the Ballroom of the Student 

Colette Oldmixon, chairman of that 
committee, explained the films they 
were showing. The first, named "Pyx" 
starring Karen Black, is about a call 
girl and her deadly secret. The 
producer says no two people see it the 
same way. 

"Shock Treatment" starring Roddy 
McDowall, is about a man in a mental 
institute. He is a sane man who goes 
under cover. 

"Frankinstein-the Monster from 
Hell" is a typical Frankinstein movie. 

"Rosemary's Baby," starring Mia 
Farrow, portrays the idea that 

Rosemary has the devil's son when she 
gives birth to the child. 

"The Hospitality and Decorations 
committees are working with Music 
and Films committees, and will be 
serving refreshments. 

Costumes will be 
worn by some the committee members 
and students are encouraged to dress 
the part," said Ms. Oldmixon. 

No chairs will in the ballroom, so 
bring a blanket or something to sit on 
and have a fun time. 

Cast and crew members for "Five on 
the Black Hand Side," the second Little 
Theater production of the fall semester, 
were announced last week by Edith 
Harris, student producer. 

The play will be presented November 
9-12 at 7 p.m. in the NSU Little Theater. 

Mrs. Eloise Hogan is the director of 
the production and Dr. E. Robert Black 
is the producer. 

According to Ms. Harris, "Five on the 
Black Hand Side" is "basically a 
comedy". It was written by Charlie L. 
Russell. Set in present day Harlem, the 
play involves a domineering husband, 
and his wife who finally realizes that 
her marriage is not the partnership that 
it should be. "Five on the Black Hand 
Side" is the first all black production to 
be staged at NSU. 

Ms. Harris explained that since there 
is a great deal of script material for the 
cast members to learn, the major 
characters in the play have been double 
cast. Double casting of several 
characters is incomplete.

The Reserve Officer's Training Corps 
at Northwestern State University will 
sponsor "Operation Demon V", a three- 
day field training exercise for high 
school cadets this weekend. 

Participating in the training program 
which begins at 11 a.m. Friday and 
continues through noon Sunday, will be 
more than 100 Junior ROTC Cadets 
from high schools throughout the state. 

The exercises will be conducted by 
members of Company A 2nd Batallion 
of the 12th Special Forces Group 
(Green Berets) from Ft. Worth, Tex. 
This is the fifth consecutive year that 
the company has provided the

Geoffrey T. Barker, and the coor- 
dinator of the exercise for the 12th 

Special Forces Group is Sgt. Donald W. 

Sgt. Maj. Harold Collier of the

schools will receive instructions from 
professional soldiers who will be lec- 
turing and giving demonstrations in 
such areas as first aid, preparation of 
survival meals, ambush, patrolling, 
camp defense, raids, scouting and rope

NSU ROTC cadets in their junior year 
will be placed in leadership positions to 

gain experience in troop leading, 
problem solving and organizations and 
responsibilities. Two juniors will have 
17 people in their group. 

"High school cadets need exposure to 
this type of training," said Lt. Col. 
Walter B. Harris Jr., Professor of 
military science and director of ROTC 
at Northwestern. "It gives theman 
opportunity to train under the super- 
vision of professionals, and it also gives 
our cadets training in leadership. Our

Northwestern may be in- 
serious trouble music-wise 
after January 1 when the 
federal copyright law no 
longer exempts universities 
from payments of royalties for 
music played on campus. 

Northwestern functions 
which will be directly affected 
are dances, concerts, band 
performances, and KNWD 
radio programming. The only 
exempted music performance 
is that music played within a 
non-profit educational in- 
stitution for the purpose of 
teaching music. 

At this time, higher 
education groups are meeting 
with the three music-licensing 
agencies— American Society 
of Composers, Authors, and 
Publishers (ASCAP), 
Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) 
and SESAC, Inc.— to negotiate 
a blanket agreement in the 
form of a license that could 

cover everything in campus 

Of course, Northwestern 
could allow unlicensed per- 
formances on campus and 
subject itself to fines. Ac- 
cording to the law, each time a 
piece of music is performed in 
public without the permission 
of the copyright owner the 
university is subject to a 
minimum fine of $250 for each 
violation. For example if NSU 
has a dance each song played 

would cost NSU $250 a piece if 
they are caught violating the 

At this point in time there is 
no indication as to how 
negotiations will turn out, but 
NSU is definitely facing a time 
when there will be fewer 
concerts, dances, and etc., 
current music played on 
KNWD. Students are facing 
the possibility that a fee in- 
crease may be necessary to 
cover these additiona costs.

Of all the diseases known to 
infect mankind, one of the 
mosst em. 

Of all the diseases known to 
infect mankind, one of the 
most infectious, the most 
prone to epidemic, is 
criticism. It tends to spread 
more quickly than the Hong 
Kong Flu. However, given the 
proper environment for 
growth, pride is also infectious 
and quick to spread. Pride and 
scorn are both relative con- 
cepts and feelings. Quite of- 
ten, what one may view with 
scorn, another may see with a 
great sense of pride. What 
spirit one exhibits often 
depends almost entirely upon 
his or her perspective on the 
matter— how he or she choses 
to look at things. If a person 
would rather see only the 
negative side of things, to find 
only problems, he will, and 
usually without too much 
difficulty. On the other hand, 
those who choose to see what 
is right and good about a 
situation, what can be a 
source of pride for them, they 
will rarely be disappointed. It 
depends on what a person 
wants to see. And so it goes for 
those of us who are a part of 
Northwestern State 
University. We are a part of a 
institution that has its share 
both of strengths and 
weaknesses, and which group 
we prefer to point up deter- 
mines how we view our 
university. We can be proud, 
or we can be unduly critical; 
we can gripe about all the 
problems, or become a part of 
the solution. It's up to us as 
individuals to choose. 

However, in recent days, if 
he or she is attentive and 
sensitive to such things, a 
person can feel the first rip- 
ples of a fresh, new wind 
blowing on "The Hill"; a 
resurgance of a positive at- 
titude, of "Demon Pride" in a 
much broader sense than just 

hazards on Greek Hill, student 
services meeting, chimes and 
parking at Greek Hill.

an athletic scheer. And, it has 
a deeper meaning than a 
winning football team, or 
perhaps even a newly- 
appointed president. It has to 
do, on senses, with a 
reassessment on the part of 
many within the University 
about who and what we are as 
a school, and as individuals. It 
has to do with people 
reassessing past negative 
attitudes, with people asking 
tough questions— "What part 
have I played in past short- 
comings at N.S.U? What can I 
do to make things different- 
better— in the future?" A 
sense of hope seems to be 
emerging out of the despair of 
the recent past. A general 
feeling is that better things 
are in store for our campus— 
in every possible way. But 
such feelings, dreams and 
hopes will never become 
reality unless that new and 
fresh wind keeps blowing in all 
of us; unless we all begin a 
concerted effort to accent the 

We are a part of a great 
institution of higher learning; 
an institution which can be 
even greater if we but allow it 
to be. Northwestern should be 
to us what students and 
alumni. But this is not 
something that someone else 
will be able to do— we must 
each take the responsibility to 
do our part. There will be no 
better day for N.S.U. no 
brighter tomorrow, unless we 
are ALL willing to work 
toward it— TOGETHER!

'Knots'' cast has problems 

by Richard Barnickel 
It is easy to suggest that a play can have a 
meaning or message that is different to all 
persons viewing it. To accomplish this the 
play must start with some central idea.

Little Theatre on Wednesday night is Nor- 
thwestern entry into the American College 
Theatre Festival. 

Director Ray Schexnider has assembled a 
cast which on the surface does reflect the 
characters that the playwright intends to be 
the universal family of an ordinary man. The 
problem with the cast could be the fact that 
the playwright, Tadeusz Rosewicz has not 
given the characters real traits of a family, 
save one brief scene toward the play's end. 

The play deals with the return of Henry to 
his wife Eve, daughter Gizela, and son Benji. 
Henry has just returned from Paris. Upon 
returning he slips on a banana peel and as far 
as his wife is concerned, when he shows up 
one hour later from work and bandaged up, he 
has forgotten everything that ever existed 
between the family. 

The frustration of Eve with her husband is 
brought to light by Debbie Minturn in a 
convincing manner. Visually, she has the 
most striking scene in the play with her 
pantomime dance, which precedes Henry's 
return. In it, her anxieties with her husband 
are explained by a statement that "she is 

The following 
to a collage of "married" life. Frustration, a 
nxiety, and obligations may have driven 
Henry to forget, but his wife will make him 
remember. The children: Angelique 
Schexnider and Mike Doren, show us intellig- 
ence and an understanding of adult problems. 
Their brief scenes actually hold the rambling 

Charlie Grau as Henry has the difficult task 
of showing us the pressures of the world on an 
ordinary man. His eventual understanding of 
world problems comes too late. 

In the end nothing is really resolved. What 
does the play attempt? What we have in th e 
end is a series of scenes that do not show any 
real conflict or resolution. 

The dramatic techniques used by the 
director are varied, as varied as the ideas 
raised by these two 1-acts put into a full length 
production. Visually the play has its moments 
with the 16mm projections, the use of a form- 
less Greek chorus and various sound effects. 
They do not add to the understanding of the 
production but merely aid it along. In other 
words, they are nice but are just coloration. 

Schexnider's idea of taking a group of 
young players and molding them into one that 
can understand the conventions within which 
they are working has fallen short. If indeed 
there is something to be learned from the play 
it is that the cast should not take their parts in 
such a formal manner. If they are to make us 
enjoy they must enjoy, they must move as 
fast as the scenes and as lightly. 

The play appears to be coming to a shat- 
tering end with the dinner scene, then again 
changes course to an ending which leaves one 
wishing they had finished the dinner scene.

Readers comment on issues 

Dear Editor: 

This is an answer to the 
young and misinformed 
reporter who wrote the Oc- 
tober 4 edition of Grandstand 
View— (he didn't write his 
name on the article)— I don't 
believe that he quoted Dr. 
Carr or the Athletic Council 
correctly. If he did, I wish the 
Athletic council would let me 
talk to them before making 
any final decision concerning 
women's volleyball. Even 
though I resigned as coor- 
dinator of women's athletics 
after two years of service and 
asked to return to the 
classroom I can still shed 
some light on the subject. I 
will take the article statement 
by statement and discuss it. 

In the first place, as usual, 
Northwestern led the state in 
setting the pattern for im- 
plementation of Title IX. As 
an educational institution, 
Northwestern has always set 
the pattern. To make a long 
story short, NSU provided a 
female coordinator of 
athletics, provided a (40,000 
budget, accepted four sports 
for women— basketball, 
volleyball, tennis and badmin- 
ton. I happened to be the 
women's coordinator at the 
time and I resent the 
statement that we attempted 
to schedule for quantity in- 
stead of quality. I don't 
believe that four sports out of 
a possible thirteen could be 
called quantity. Some year as 
coordinator the badminton 
team was told that they would 
not be subsidized the next year 
because high schools were not 
teaching enough badminton to 

provide varsity material. So, 
in reality, Northwestern is 
sporting three major sports 
recommended by LAIAW 
which are volleyball, 
basketball and tennis. 

If the Athletic Council wants 
to hurt LAIAW the best way 
they could do it would be to 
drop volleyball as a varsity 
sport. You see, ten years 
before Title IX, Mrs. Lewis, 
Mrs. Farris and Andrea 
Farrow instigated in- 
tercollegiate sports at NSU. 
And because of a lack of 
competition in Louisiana, they 
had to seek opponents in 
Texas, Tennessee, Arkansas, 
and Mississippi. This is not 
true today. There is plenty of 
competition within the state in 
the LAIAW approved sports. 

NSU also led in the 
recruitment and scholarship 
field. I could see in my first 
year as coordinator that 
because of Title IX colleges 
would start receiving some of 
the talent that we had 
received when we were the 
only college in the state with 
intercollegiate competition. 
So I asked President 
Kilpatrick for at least 16 
scholarships. I received those 
scholarships and divided most 
of them in half so I could 
recruit as many athletes as 
possible for NSU before 
someone else got the 
scholarship idea. And I 
believe firmly that it worked, 
even if temporarily. We 
recruited some excellent 
athletes because of it. The 
next year practically every 
member school of LAIAW was 

offering scholarships. This 
was bound to come. We were 
first to hire a full-time female 
coach and if we're looking for 
another female coach to 
enlarge the staff, I don't 
believe it because I've heard 
nothing about it. Job op- 
portunities such as this reach 
all members of the HPER 

I realize I have to shorten 
this article because of lack of 
space so I am answering the 
question "Is varsity level 
volleyball lost to NSU?" with 

L What schools other than 
Tech and Centenary em- 
phasized only one sport? As 
far as I know, the other 
members of LAIAW em- 
phasized three sports: 
volleyball, basketball, and 

2. Attendance— I went to the 
October 4 tournament at NSU 
and I counted more than 300 
people. I saw no reporters or 
photographers of the 
members of the Athletic 
Council. Where were you? The 
same number attend women's 
basketball games and less 
than that attend the men's and 
women's tennis matches. 

3. Cost of travel, equipment, 
uniforms and recruitment? 
The men's football team has 
70 on scholarships, one fourth 
of which get their uniforms 
dirty or they are red-shirted. 
Men's basketball has at least 
30 in the same category ; not to 
mention the men's tennis 
team which has all but one of 
its members from Chile and 


has only recently received six 
scholarships instead of four. 
The women's team has four 
scholarships— two full and two 
half. If you would Like to 
compare travel between the 
men's sports and the women's 
sports all you have to do is 
compare schedules both fall 
and spring. 

4. 1 have more to say but I 
know I will not receive that 
much space in the CURRENT 
SAUCE and I understand back 
to quanitity vs. quality. Title 
DC for women is only four 
years old and already it is 
being chopped down from 
three sports to two. How come 
the Athletic Council does not 
investigate the quality of our 
male varsity sports teams? At 
least one fourth of all the 
males participating in varsity 
sports are not attending 
classes on a regular basis and 
are failure students and I can 
prove it. Those athletes in 
question are kept in school 
only by teachers who give 
them credit for being a win- 
ning athlete and not on 
classwork performance. If I 
am wrong, then let them deny 

5. Why did the reporter say 
they were not teaching volley- 
ball in the high schools in 
North Louisiana? NSU's 
female HPER teachers aren't 
going to like that and I believe 
you will very shortly be 
receiving letters to the editor 
from our former students who 
are teaching volleyball as 
hard as they can because they

Seventeen resident

Illinois University literally got 

a taste of Louisiana when they 
visited NSU last Thursday and 
Friday to participate in a 

resident assistant exchange 
program sponsored by the 
Office of Housing. 

After a day of special 
discussion sessions, 

programs, and a, tour of the 
NSU campus and several 
historical homes in Nat- 
chitoches, the Western 
Illionois students were served 
a meal of meat pies, and red 

beans and rice at a party held 
for them Thursday night. 
They were also treated to 

Cajun gumbo which was 
prepared by Mrs. Hazel 
Evans, house director in West 

Two NSU graduates, Colette 
Cheramie and Shirley Snyder, 
who are now employed at 
Western Illinois University, 
participated in the exchange 

program. Ms. Cheramie will 
return to NSU next summer to 
complete her graduate work. 

According to Becky Brown, 
assistant to housing director

resident assistants attended a 
nationwide resident assistant

received the award for "Best

It is his fourth book on the 
Black American dialect.

continues Dr. Dillard's 
argument that the Black 
English dialect is not just a 
corruption of the standard or 
white dialect and that it has its 
own grammatical structure 
and rules of usage. Thus, he 
maintains that a view of Black 
English as merely a form of 
ignorant or uneducated 
English is misinformed and 
inaccurate. More importantly, 
such a view may foster a kind 
of insidious, unrecognized, 
prejudice; and it can lead to 
false evaluations of verbal 
abilities and even of in- 

Dr. Dillard's "Lexicon of

presents a lively, picturesque 
and vivid vocabulary' that 
many people do riot even know- 
exists. And many such term- 
s— "okay", for example- 
have become a part of stan- 
dard English. 

He does not argue that every 
word unique to the Black 
dialect is African in origin; 
but he does argue that African 
origins have been far more 
influential than most people 
have recognized. 

"A knowledge of the Black 
English vernacular will not 
solve ghetto educational 
problems," according to Dr. 
Dillard "but, those who do not 
know that lexicon will be 
severely handicapped in their 
knowledge will make small 
contributions to progress. This 
work can hope for nothing 
better than to make such a 
small advance." 

The "Lexicon of Black 
English" has chapters on 
"The Terminology of Sex and 
Lovemaking," on "The 
Terminology of Religion and 
the church," on "Music, 
Especially the Blues," on 
"The Street Hustle," as well 
as others on the social 
significance of such a study 
and the relevance of slang to a 

In the schapter on the 
"Terminology of Sex and 
lovemaking,' he discusses the 
usages of such terms as 
"snake," "grinder," "dog," 
"salty dog," "biscuit," 
"cake" ( as opposed to 
"cornbread"), and "cab- 
bage." From the famous blues 
singer Bessie Jackson, he 
quotes, "You sure won't miss 
your jelly til your jelly roller's 

Even "Rock and Roll," as a 
musical term, may have had 
is its origins in such sexual 
usage. From Hogman Maxey, 
and inmate at Angola, he 
quotes the lyrics: "Rock me, 
mama, rock me all night long. 
Oh, I want you to rock me, lik 
my back ain't got no bone." 
Another familiar line is "My 
baby rocks me with one steady 
roll." At the same time, Dr. 
Dillard finds that both terms,

"rock" and "roll," appear in

In "Music, Especially the 
Blues," he discusses the 
language of a music which he 
openly admits to loving and 
which he frequently argues 
contains a kind of code; one 
which would be understood 
by some but missed by others. 
"Alligator," for example, was 
a derogatory term that whites 
copied without understanding. 
This code could be used, then, 
for "in jokes" and, at the 
same time, for private and 
personal laments. Many lyrics 
also contain veiled references 
for Voodoo, Hoodoo, etc. In 
this chapter such famous 
name as "jelly Roll Morton, 
Charlie "Bird" Parker, and

"that Black children have

The Student Advisory 
Council i SAC i. an advisory 
board to the I-a. State Board of 
Trustees for stale colleges and 
universities, is comprised of 
representative members from 
each state college and 
university in Louisiana. 

According to David Walker. 
SGA president and Nor- 
thwestern's representative to 
the SAC. the council plays an 

important role in that it 
provides a direct link between 
each college or university and 
the Board of Trustees. "With 
this SAC. we have a direct 
recognized voice to the 
board." commented Walker. 

The SAC holds regular 
meetings that are open to the 
public encouraging students to 
attend and voice their opinions 
on matters concerning their 
respective schools. 

The SAC has direct 
representation on the Board of. 
Trustees by electing one' 
member of the council who: 
serves directly on the board.

LOB contestants have unique hobbies 

By Ruth Dennis 

Twenty NSU girls have been 
selected to compete for the 
title of Miss Lady of the 
Bracelet (LOB). They were 
selected during preliminaries 
Saturday, October 15. The 
girls were judged in three 
areas: talent, interview, and 

The twenty girls receiving 
this honor are Jeri Bagley, 
Lee Ann Blaufuss, Karen 
Carr, Zina Curlee, Cathie 
Edmunds, Jody Foster, Becky 
Haskins, Marie Hebert, 
Rhonda Henson and Maggie 

Included in the top twenty 
will be Melanie Jones, Venetia 
Lee, Debbie Nichols, Debbie 
Price, Janice Rogers, Sadie 
Scott, Christolyn Turner, 
Laura Wilson, Ten Wilson, 
and Charlotte Vizena. 

Each week before the 
pageant is held the Current 

Sauce will interview five girls. 
The girls have been put in 
alphabetical order. 

Jeri Bagley, a freshman 
nursing major, said one of her 
hobbies was roller coaster 
riding. She enjoys it because it 
is scary and exciting. "The 
front seat is the best place to 
sit," Ms. Bagley said. 

She likes giraffes because 
she can identify with them. 
She explained that they were 
tall and freckled, like her. 

Her other hobbies include 
ancient Egyptian history 
swimming and water skiing. 

After graduation, Ms. 
Bagley would like to travel 
with the Peace Corps. 

She is presently the Prin- 
cess of Panola County in 
Texas and will be in Miss 
Holiday in Dixie to represent 
her county there. Her 
hometown is Carthage, Texas. 

A music education major 

with voice emphasis, Lee Ann 
Blaufuss from Bossier City, 
will sing "Don't it Make my 
Brown Eyes Blue" for her 
talent. This song was made 
popular by Chrystal Gayle and 
won a country music award. 

Ms. Blaufuss enjoys singing 
and playing the piano. She 
said that when she plays the 
piano it keeps her mind off of 
her problems and relaxes her. 

She is a member of the 
Entertainers this year. She is 
being sponsored by Delta Zeta 

One of her hobbies is to 
collect turtles and frogs. 
Ceramics, pictures, and 
posters are a few of the dif- 
ferent types that she has. 

Her comment about the 
pageant was "The pageant 
gives me the opportunity to 
learn new songs and perform 
before the public. I believe 
that the pageant should be fun 

and if a girl competes for sake 
of the title alone, she has lost 
the whole point." 

A freshman accounting 
major, Karen Carr from 
Natchitoches, will perform a 
dramatic monologue, which 
she wrote herself. The 
monologue is about a Southern 
girl who visits the North and 
she compares the South and 
North in their lifestyles. Ms. 
Carr is being sponsored by Phi 
Mu Fraternity. 

She enjoys being outdoors, 
and she likes to swim and 
water and snow ski. This past 
summer, she taught swim- 
ming at the city pool here. She 
is a qualified WSI. 

She is a member of the Cane 
River Belles, NSU's dance 
line. She is an active member 
of the Natchitoches Christmas 
Festival Commitee. They 
have been working on plans 
since summer. 

Ethel Williams-- 'I am determined 9 

By Shirley LeDuff 

Some people may point to 
Ethel Williams as evidence of 
the Women's Liberation 
movement having finally 
arrived at NSU, but as the 
only female officer on 
University Police, Ms. 
Williams does not see herself 
blazing any new trails. She is 
simply pursuing a somewhat 
male-oriented career which 
she finds exciting and 

Despite frequent phone calls 
from a worried mother and 
"long talks" with University 
Police Chief James Lee, Ms. 
Williams was determined to 
become a commissioned of- 

"I received no violent op- 
position," remarked the 20 
year old senior coed from 
Alexandria. "Chief Lee made 
me aware of the things that I 
might encounter and told me 
that I would be expected to 
function in the same way as 

the men." . . 

In order to be commissioned 

by the city of Natchitoches, 
Ms. Williams had to undergo 
142 hours of training in dif- 
ferent aspects of law en- 
forcement including first aid, 
traffic control, search, and 
seizure. With excitement and 
tension mounting, the 

determined Ethel Williams 
was officially commissioned 
by the city of Natchitoches on 
July 11.

How do the male officers 

feel about working with a

previously traditional male 
dominated role? "She works

Police. "I feel that she's quite 

When asked if some event 
stood out since she began 
working as a Campus Security 
officer, Ms. Williams chuckled 

Ms. Carr said her main job: 
was collecting and writing of j

the pageant, Ms. Carr replied,] 
"I am looking forward to the!

preliminaries gave me some 
experience that I needed."

Couyon takes first 

The Couyon flag football 
team won first place in the 
intramural flag football 
league with a closely fought 2- 
victory over Kappa Sigma 
Wednesday night. 

The margin came when 
pulled flag behind the 
goal line. The rest of the game 
was a flurry of mistakes as 
both teams made a con- 
siderable amount of tur- 
novers. The worst blow to 
Kappa Sigma came in the first 
half when quarterback John 
Breland injuredhis knee and 

was unable to finish the game. 
Substitute Ray Ranger played 
well but was plagued by the 
quickness of Couyon rusher 
David Breazeale. The longest 
play of the game was an old 
flea-flicker pass from Ray 
Ranger to Kip Morad who 
turned and pitched the ball 
back to Henry Brabner. 
Grabner ran for 47 yards but 
the play was to no avail as 
Breazeale wormed into Sigs 
backfield on fourth down to 
block the pass. 
In the first game of the night 

the Beaus defeated Kappa 
Alpha for third place by a 6-0 
tally. The difference came in 
the second half when the 
Beaus Dennis Woods com- 
pleted a long pass to Bill Land 
who rambled in for the touch- 
down. The rest of the game 
was mainly a defensive 

The NSU Kappa Sigma wiii 
now travel to Monroe along 
with Couyon to play Nor- 
theasts' greek and in- 
dependent champions 
respectively. The date and 
time will be announced later.

Like Rocky Balboa, the Dodgers were the 
good guys who just couldn't win. Led by fiesty 
Tommy Lasorda, the Dodgers played with the 
exuberance of a Little League team. They 
convincingly dethroned the defending World 
Champion Cincinnati Reds, a team predicted 
in preseason to be unbeatable. They played 

sound baseball all season long, put forth a 
never-say-die effort to win the pennant, but as 
Casey Stengel said, 'Nice guys finish last.' 

George Steinbrenner disproved the story 
that you can't buy happiness. He dipped into 
the free agent poll and spent millions of 
dollars to buy himself a World Championship 
team. But how long will it last? Already, 
Thurman Munson is talking trade, and 
Reggie Jackson is unhappy earning $275,000 a 
year being a mediocre outfielder. As long as 
Steinbrenner can't buy Garvey, Smith, Cey, 
and Baker the Dodgers will be here for years 
to come, but where will the Yankees be? One 
can almost see the day when Rod Carew will 
go 4 for 4 against the Yankees and the next 
day be batting in a Yankee uniform with a 
new million dollar contract. George Stein- 
brenner will get his in the end. Greed cannot 
build a solid organization. He will eventually 
choke himself and his organization on this 
greed. But, for today the Yankees are 
champions of the World. No Virginia, there is 
no Santa Claus.

The world's greatest family

to Prather Coliseum on the 
Northwestern State 
University campus for one 
game only on November 17, 

Each time the Trotters step

is made. In more than fifty

The Harlem Globetrotters, 

unquestionably the most 
popular sports team this side 
of the moon, have played more 
games before more people 
than any team in history. 

Attendance records are 
staggering. The outdoor 
basketball attendance record, 
which to this day has not been 
approached, was achieved in 
1951 when the Trotters played 
before over 75,000 fans in 

The Trotters hold the indoor 
pro-basketball attendance 
record, too. A mark set when 
more than 30,000 cheering fans 
viewed the Magicians of 

Basketball in the Louisiana 

Records continue to be set. 
In just one season, nearly 
three million people see the 
Trotters perform. With each 
passing season, the number 
grows. WAS A 

Some wonder how the $a r k Schro< 
Trotters can continue the & going an 
incredible pace which now 
spans over fifty years. But 
regardless of how they do it, 
the magic continues. As the 
next half century unfolds, 
there is no doubt, the Harlem 
Globetrotters will set records 
never before seen in the an- 
nals of sports.

La. Tech's SGA forfeited to 
NSU's SGA in a game that was 
scheduled last Tuesday, Oct. 
18 at 7 p.m. in the Turpin 

After working diligently, 
members of the NSU-SGA, 
Cheerleader squad and the 
State Fair Court waited for an 
hour and a half for the Tech 
Team to show up. At 8:30 p.m. 
the game was called off and 
everybody left. About 10 or 15 
minutes later the Tech bus 
drove up too late for the game 
but not too late for the party 
the two SGA's held out at the 
new Recreation Complex. 

Last year Northwestern's 
SGA traveled to Ruston and 
defeated Tech's SGA 7-0. 

John Breland, State Fair 
Chairman said that, "Tech 
must be in a different time 
zone, they were 30 niinutes 
late for the Shreveport Press 
Conference and an hour and a 
half late for the SGA Flag 
Football game."

Billy Reynolds, a four-year 
•tar for Northwestern State 
university's basketball squad 
aid a seventh-round draft 
3oice of the Seattle Super- 
*nics of the National 
basketball Association last 
tring, was cut by the NBA 

The announcement was 
tede by Seattle SuperSonics 
-meral manager Lenny 
'likens and Seattle coach Bob 

Reynolds, a 6-foot-6 product 
; Calhoun, had gone through 

* rookie camp and was one 

* the stars of the unofficial 
fookie league," averaging 
*er 20 points per game in the 
fries of games. 

He was invited to Seattle's 
Heran camp, one of only four 
'Okies invited to take part. 
<ynolds had survived one 
*rlier cut which trimmed the 
toad to 15, but the latest cut 

brought the Seattle squad to 
the required limit of 11 

"I hated to see Billy leave 
the squad," said NSU head 
basketball coach Tynes 
Hildebrand. "I thought he got 
a fair shake by Seattle, and I 
think we probably came as 
close to making their squad as 
he would have anywhere else. 

"I think he'll still try to hook 
on with some club, though. I 
have no doubts that he can 
play professional ball." 

Reynolds virtually rewrote 
NSU's scoring records during 
a stellar four-year career, 

bombing in 2,009 points to 
become one of only 17 players 
in state history ever to crack 
the 2,000-point barrier. He 
averaged 26.5 points during 
his senior year, good enough 
to rank eighth nationally in 
scoring among all major 
college players, and his 675 
points during the season set 
another school record. 

In all, Reynolds set or tied a 
total of nine school standards 
during a career in which he 
was twice chosen to the All- 
Louisiana team and was 
selected to the All-South In- 
dependent squad.

AVOIDING TACKLERS — Demon quarterback 
Mark Rhodes avoids one of the many Bulldog 
defenders that seemed to stay in the NSU back- 
field most of the night. Rhodes passed for 40 yards 
on four completions. 

HANGING ON— NSU safety Stanley 
Lee looks for running room after he 

intercepted a pass to stop a Tech 
drive at the 11 yard line. 

Well, there's always next 

These words were said by 
many Demon fans last 
Saturday night after a 
disappointing 30-8 setback at 
the hands of La. Tech in the 
annual State Fair Classic held 
in Shreveport. 

The win was the bulldogs 
seventh in a row. Tech now 
holds a 43-16-4 advantage in 
the series. 

The Demon offense just 
simply could not get un- 
tracked as they were plagued 
with the likes of Tech 
defensemen Jimmy Black- 

shire, Larry Wilkins and John 
Ward in their backfield most 
of the night as Tech sacked the 
quarterback nine times in the 
course of the game. Coach 
A.L. Williams said, "We were 
unable to pick up their blitzes 
anytime during the game." 

And blitz they did as the 
'Dog defense allowed the 
Demons only 117 yards with a 
low two yards per play 
average. Out of these yards 
only one yard resulted from 
the NSU rushing game. 

The lone Demon score came 
in the fourth quarter when 
Williams sent in Freshman 

quarterback Rick Lanning to 
perk up the ailing NSU of- 
fense, lanning proceeded to 
guide the Demons 70 yards in 

10 plays topping it off with an 

11 yard pass to Waymond 
Waters for the touchdown. 
NSU then went for two and got 
it as Lanning found Jack 
Serpas open for the con- 

Lanning Lannings per- 
formance proved to be the 
only bright spot as both the 
Demon offense and defense 
could not get cranked up. Tech 
Quarterback Keith 
Thibodeaux riddled the 

Demon pass defense for 201 
yards and two touchdowns. 
Tech running back John 
Henry White piled up and 
impressive 144 yards rushing 
as he continued to race his 
way to the Tech record books. 

For NSU Lanning led the 
field in passing as he went 6-4 
for 56 yards and one touch- 
down. Mark Rhodes started 
the game and was 6-4 for 40 
yards and first-stringer Kenny 
Philibert was a disappointing 
11-2 with two interceptions and 
20 yards. Rushing leaders 
were Mark Schroeder with 16 
yards and Joe Delaney with 11 

The Demons used what may 
be considered the quarterback 

platoon system. Senior Mark 
Rhodes started the game but 
proved largely ineffective 
against the stingy Tech 
defense. Then Kenny Philibert 

came in and drove the offense 
down to the Tech 35 where it 
then sputtered and kicker 
Dennis Pendergraft fell short 
on a 52 yard field goal at- 
tempt. After that the Bulldog 
defense plagued Philibert as 
they continually put on the 
pressure. Finally freshman 
Lanning came in and passed 
his way to the only Demon 

Actually NSU can be glad 
the score was not more lop- 
sided as the 'Dogs gave up the 
ball twice inside the Demon 20 
yard line with one fumble and 
one interception. 

La. Tech is now 4-0-2 on the 
season as the Demons take a 
break this weekend with a 5-3 
mark. The next game will be 
Nov. 5 as the Demons host the

race as harriers from both teams 
undertake the five mile course.

AND THE END— NSU's Billy Green 
was the first to finish the course as 
he raced across the line with a 27:19 

clocking. The Demons took the top 
four positions in an easy 17-57 wia 

The NSU cross-country 
team took the top four in- 
dividual positions on their way 
to a 17-7 dual win over the 
Northeast Indians here 

Freshman Billy Green of 
Marshall, Tex. led the field by 
running the five mile course in 
27 : 19. The other three Demons 
that finished in the top four 
were freshman Ricky Crut- 
cher of Pearl, Miss., 27:55; 
freshman Kelvin Stewart of 
Opelousas, 26:11; and John 
Russell, freshman from 
Columbus, Ga., 26:12. 

The Demon harriers are 
now 3-0 in dual meets this year 
having defeated Centenary 
College 1540 and Northeast 25- 
33 in earlier action this season. 
This was the Demons first and 
only home appearance of the 
fall season. 

Green has been the Demons 
individual leader in both of the 
dual meets and the two in- 
vitational meets the Demons 
have been involved with this 

The NSU harriers travel to 
Lafayette next Saturday to 
participate in the USL In-

The faculty of the Depart- 
ment of Health, Physical 
Edcuation, and Recreation 
met with all graduate and 
undergraduate majors of the 
department on September 29. 

According to Dr. Gordon 
Coker, department head, the 
purpose of the meeting was to 
allow the entire department, 
both students and faculty, to 
get to know each other. He 
explained that the meeting 
also provided an opportunity 
to inform students of the 
various undergraduate, 
graduate, and doctoral 
programs in the department. 
Students received a 
memorandum which outlined 
the redistribution of some 
courses and gave pointers on 
the declaration of a minor, 
registration, and meeting with

degree programs in the 
department are health and

Dr. Warren Evans, chairman 
of the Recreation and Outdoor

among the many places Dr. 
Evans has visited. 

Dr. Coker stated that he 
hopes to have a meeting of this 
nature once each semester.

The above proposition made by the 
Warrington Student Government 
Organization is the end product of 
nearly a month's debate and in- 
teraction between the Natchitoches and 
Warrington campuses. The issue has 
highlighted recent SGA meetings and 
has evoked varied emotions from each 
Senate member. 

Present at the Oct. 10 regular SGA 
meeting was David Humphrey, acting 
president of the Student Government 
Organization at the Warrington 
campus. Humphrey appeared before 
the Senate with the request that the 
SGA recognize the Warrington campus 
as a satellite government to the SGA at 

Humphrey expressed concern at the 
lack of communication between the 
Warrington and Natchitoches cam- 
puses. "I feel that this proposed af- 
filiation would mean a gain in com- 

munication," he commented. 

A copy of proposed bylaws were 
passed out to each senator. Discussion 
followed with Humphrey and two other 
representatives from the Warrington 
campus answering questions. 

David Walker, SGA president, ap- 
pointed a special committee composed 
of senate members to study the 
proposal and visit the Warrington 
campus when the Senate agreed not to 
make a final decision on the matter that 
night. Members of the committee in- 
cluded: Tom Barton, John McKellar, 
Suzanne Johnson, Jennifer Karr, Lane 
Pittard, David Walker, and Tim 

On Oct. 19 and 21, in a referendum of 
the Warrington Campus Student Body, 
the students elected to remain affiliated 
with the SGA as a satellite government. 
At the same time, the students accepted 
their proposed bylaws with the name 
Northwestern State University- 
Warrington Campus Student Govern- 
ment Organization (NSU-WSGO). 

With 79 percent of the Warrington 
Student Body voting, 92 percent were in 
favor of the proposition. 

At the Oct. 24 SGA meeting of the 
Natchitoches campus, Humphrey was 
again present with the results of the 
Warrington referendum and a formal 
presentation to the Senate including 
revised proposed bylaws to the Con- 
stitution of the SGA. 

Those present with Humphrey from 
the Warrington campus included: 
Debbie Ladymon, WSGO Vice 
President; Jesse Watson, WSGO 
Secretary; Kay Kennedy, WSGO 
Treasurer; and Laura Spurlock, WSGO 
Coordinator of Elections. 

The most controversial amendments 
to the proposed bylaws of the 
Warrington campus were: 1) finances; 
2) the creation of two new publication

Johnny Porrazzo will appear in concert 
tonight, November 1 at 8 p.m. in the 
Fine Arts Auditorium. What's a Johnny 
Porrazzo, you ask? 

Johnny Porrazzo is 22 years old and 
has been performing for six years. He 
performs country, rock, gospel rhythm 
and blues, and contemporary love 
ballads. There is some type of music for 

He recently put out five albums, one 
for each different type of music. He is 
considered a "superstar" by music 
critics. Just as Elton John was the 
superstar of the 70's, some believe that 
Johnny Porrazzo will be the "Superstar 
of the 80's." 

He tries to please all ages from 6 to 
60. When critics try to explain 
Porrazzo, they mention talent, per- 
sonality, and charisma. He has the 
charm of youth in his favor also. 

He swept from club performer to 
concert star in less than two years. He 
has won top honors performing in four 
different regional National En- 

tertainment Committee (NEC) 
showcases. He was one of the top 12 
selected to perform in the International 
showcase. He out-performed the main 
bill superstar on his first big time 
commerical tour. 

He produces as well as arranges and 
conducts his own music. He sings and 
plays the piano. In producing his first 
five albums, he did it in one 2 week 
around the clock marathon recording 

Porrazzo is a charismatic singer- 
pianist. He sings with styles like Elton 
John, Stevie Wonder, Barry Manilow, 
and Barbra Streisand. 

As a child, he had a gospel single 
record to hit No. 1 in 1971. It was voted 
top five that year. 

Val Scarbro, chairman of the 
Lagniappe Committee who is spon- 
soring Porrazzo, said that he is 
definitely on the upcome. "It seems like 
he'll be better known before too long." 

One of Porrazzo' s managers is an 
NSU alumni.

Two seminars on the history and 
ascension in popularity of country- 
western music will be presented today 
in the John S. Keyser Hall Auditorium. 

The first seminar, scheduled for 11 
a.m., featured Dr. Bill C. Malone of 
New Orleans discussing the origin and 
development of country-western music. 
Malone, a professor of cultural history 
at Tulane University, is author of a 
definitive study of country music called 
COUNTRY MUSIC, USA and has edited 
a book entitled STARS OF COUNTRY 

A country-western singer himself, 
Malone is currently working on a 
general interpretation of southern 
music which is to be published soon by 
the University of Kentucky Press. This 
publication will survey such fields as 
jazz, country-western folk and 
traditional blues music. 

The second seminar, to begin at 1 
p.m., will have a five member panel to 
answer questions from the audience on 
all aspects of country-western music. 

Participating in the panel discussion 
with Malone will be Townsend Miller, 
country music columnist for the 

Texas; Merlin P. Mitchell of Nat- 
chitoches who is listed in the Ray 
Lawless'basic reference book entitled 
AMERICA: Ronald N. Pippin, 
associate professor of sociology at NSU 
and a frequent speaker on country- 
western music, and Frank Page, ad- 
minstative assistant for KWKH radio in 
Shreveport and co-owner of the La. 

Page is better known for introducing 
Elvis Presley to La. Hayride Dec. 18, 
1954. He has also introduced such 
greats as Hank Williams and Bob 

Coordinating the seminar presen- 
tations sponsored by the university's 
Distinguished Lecture Series is Dr. Don 
Hatley, associate professor of English 
and co-director of the Folklife society of 

"The country music we now hear 
grew out of the mountain areas of the 
eastern part of the United States," said 
Hatley. "Most of this music originated 
with the hillbilly music that was played 
throughout the Appalachian Moun- 

Hatley stated that country-western 
music has been struggling for 
respectability for nearly a half century. 
"People began to respect country- 
western music just a few years ago 
when something called progressive 
country-western music came along," 
he said. "Singers like Willie Nelson and 
the Charlie Daniels' Band, along with 
Way Ion Jennings, had a lot to do with its 
rise in popularity." 

Pippin, who has had a deep interest in 
country-western music for many years, 
said this particular field of music began 
showing signs of widespread ac- 
ceptance about 10 years ago but only in 
the last five years has it really achieved 
national popularity. 

"Much of that came from Nashville," 
said Pippin. "The rural, good-ole-boy 
ethic helped country-music gain a lot of 
respect. What also helped was the 
progressive sound, which is refered to 
as "glitter country" in Nashville. 
Oldtimers didn't like it at first, and 
some still don't but the fact remains 
that progressive country-western 
music is attracting and selling lots of

In order for the Warrington campus 
Student Government Organization to 
become a satellite government to the 
Natchitoches SGA in the manner that it 
is requesting, the SGA must propose 
specific amendments to their con- 
stitution. These amendments must then 
be published in three consecutive issues 
of the Current Sauce prior to being 
voted upon by the Association. A 
Student Body referendum of the Nat- 
chitoches campus must then be held. 

At its Oct. 24 meeting, the SGA made 
no formal amendment proposals and 
the issue is pending further in- 
vestigation by the special committee. 

WSGO— Attending the regular October 24 meeting of the SGA- 
Northwestern were officers of the proposed satellite government 
of the Warrington campus in Shreveport. During the meeting they 
submitted their resolution to SGA members.

Rec complex nears 
final phases 

Contracts totaling $585,000 have been 
issued to two Louisiana firms for the 
construction of the final two phases of 
the student recreation complex. 

Evergreen Recreational Enterprise 
of New Orleans was awarded a contract 
for $203,100 to develop a nine-hole golf 
course on 78 acres of the recreation 
complex, which is located near the 
campus on Louisiana Hwy. 1 By-Pass. 

A contract for $385,000 was also

struction of four tennis courts, a tennis 
and golf pro shop, patio area, picnic 
shelters and other general im- 
provements to the overall project. 

Both contractors have begun moving 
equipment to the construction site, and 
work on the student-funded project is 
expected to begin immediately. All 
work now under contract should be 
completed by August of 1978. 

The first phase of the complex, which 
included the construction of a ne* 
Olympic-size outdoor swimming pool 
and modern pool pavilion, has been 
open to students since April. 

Industrial Design and Construction of 
Natchitoches constructed the first 
phase of the project at a cost of more 
than $700,000. The opening phase in- 
cluded entrance roads to the facility, 
large parking lot and extension of 

Golf course architect Jim Wall of 
Houston has been retained by Nor- 
thwestern to work with Gabriel and 
Associates of Lake Charles, the ar- 
chitects who designed the recreation 

The tennis and golf pro shop will 
include a sales area, lobby, rental 
equipment room, golf cart rental area, 
restrooms, dressing quarters and 
managment offices. 

An outdoor concert pavilion and 
several picnic shelters will also be 
constructed on the grounds, and a patio 
will be built to join the tennis and golf 
pro shop with the swimming pool 

Wood fencing will front the Hwy. 1 
By-Pass entrance to the complex, 
which will also be protected by wire 
fencing placed around the remaining 
sides of the site. The complex will have 
a unique stone gate entrance. 

The Research and Development 
Committee of the Student Union 
Governing Board has been responsible 
for the planning of the unique project, 
which is funded through student- 
assessed fees and federal grants from 
the Bureau of Outdoor Recreation in the 
U.S. Department of Interior through 
the Louisiana State Parks and 
Recreation Commission.

Love doesn't live 

In clover covered meadows 

Frolicking in slow motion.

Love takes more 
Patience than passion. 

Compromise than charm 
More Reason than romance.

A lifetime of sharing.

Growing Pains 

I remember growing pains. 
Waking in the night 
With knotted leg muscles 
Mom telling me to walk on it; 
And it would go away. 
How it hurt 
To put my weight 
On that aching limb. 
But Mom was there to steady 

And sure enough 

A few staggering strides later 

It was gone. 

Till next time. 

I'm having those pains 

Inside now. 

My body has grown up, 
But I'm a child 

I'm knotted up. 
Tangled in a mass 
Of why 
And how 
And who. 
I ache inside 
For the injustice 
I see. 

I'm twisted 

When the stock answers 

I've always kept on hand 

Mock me with their 


I'm in pain 

When I see 


I can't understand 
Or explain 
Or justify. 

It hurts to grow, Lord. 
Somehow help me 
To put my weight 
Right on the hurt 
And endure that moment 
Of redemptive pain. 
Please, Lord, steady me 
As I take 

Those stumbling steps 
Toward healing.

Warrington students - Do you want 
an additional $26 fee? 

are to fund the executive of- 
ficers in the form of a full 
scholarship for the president 
and half scholarships for the 
other four positions. A full 
scholarship would be worth 
$474.75. Multiply this figure by 
three and total scholarship 
expense will amount to 

Provisions are also made in 
the document to pay the travel 
expenses of the Warrington- 
Senator to the weekly SGA 
meetings. According to state 

law, one gets 16 cents a mile 
and the round trip is 140 miles. 
If the person leaves between 3 
and 6 p.m. he gets a $5 meal 
allowance. The total figure on 
one trip would be $27.40. 

Next spring there will be an 
estimated 14 weekly meetings 
of the SGA. Total travel ex- 
penses will be $383.60. 

A total of $1807.85 would be 
expended from the budget 
before they even begin to 
consider projects, financing 
committees, etc. This is ap- 

proximately 24 percent of 
their budget for one semester. 
That would leave an operating 
budget of $5784.15. 

The reason for such a 
detailed explanation and the 
information itself is to make 
the Warrington students 
aware of the $26 fee increase 
they could vote upon them- 
selves and what will be done 
with a good portion of the fund 

There is a definite need at 
the Warrington place campus 

for some type ot organization 
to handle the special needs 
and interests of the nursing 
community. The formation of 
a Warrington Senator would 
greatly facilitate the need of 
that campus for represen- 
tation in our SGA especially 
since the nursing students do 
pay SGA fees and • taxation 
without representation is 

As to the formation of the 
WSBO, all that can be said at 
this point is that there is a 

need for some type of stru c ! 
ture and this could be th 
answer. Further developmeti 
on the idea must be complete | 

before the SGA and thj,l 
student body can vote on surj ' 
a proposal. Once tblj 
technicalities are ironed out 
bring students up to date; gj v | 
them a status report and full ' 
explain what will be don 
concerning the Warringto 
place proposal. 

Some of our policies 

the AKA 

It is becoming more and 
more evident that students 
need to be made aware of 
certain policies with regards 
to the CURRENT SAUCE and 
it contents. Here is a 
statement, drawn up by a 
CURRENT SAUCE staff some 
years ago which embodies our 
basic policies. 

Good taste. 

We are bound by libel laws. 

Letters must be signed, and 
we reserve the right to edit 
them, not to change the copy 
but rather for the sake of 
space limitations. 

Our more informal policies, 
but just as important for the 
production of the CURRENT 
SAUCE, include 

production procedures often 
make it impossible to keep 
such a promise. 

What are these production 
procedures? , 


Very rarely can we make 
exceptions to deadlines. Our 
copy must be at the NAT- 
does our printing, in certain 
percentages at certain times. 

Wednesday, therefore, is 
early deadline for our news 
copy, and final deadline for 
sports, activities and 
editorials. We still have to do 
make-up and headlines, so 
Thursday and Friday are 
devoted to these tasks. 


We do not promise to print 
any article, simply because

Late-breaking stories will 
be accepted Monday before 10

reason for their publication 
and if they are of enough 
urgency to be considered 
"MUST" items for that issue. 


We do, of course, make 
every attempt to get all the 
news that we receive into the

because of space limitations 
which are the result of 
economical limitations. 

funded by student money 
budgeted by the Student 
Government Association. The 
remainder of our money 
comes form advertising sold 
by our student advertising 
staff.— And, like anything 
else, we are limited by the 
amount of money we have to 
operate with, in line with 
proper business methods. 


Since we often do have to cut 
articles, the student editors 
use their own news judgment 
to determine what stays and 
what goes. Of course, many 
people do not agree with our 

choices and are often furious 
when an article of theirs is left 
out but it is the editors' right 
and responsibility to deter- 
mine news value, and this is 
true on any professional 

The editor, managing 
editor, news editors, and other 
staff members decide on news 
stories and editorials. They 
also set policies for the paper, 
in line with University and 
student government policy 
and try to solve any produc- 
tion problems that come up for 
each issue. 

Staff meetings are held as 
often as possible to air any 
gripes, problems or new ideas.

Dear Editor: 

This letter deals with 
coverage or rather its lack of 
coverage of the problems that 
Sabine dormitory has been 
having. This newspaper is 
supposed to keep students 
informed about news and 
events happening on campus, 
good or bad! The situation at 
Sabine (almost mass 
hsyteria) was so bad that 
Barbara Gillis, Cecil Knotts 
and maybe others were 
brought to the dorm at mid- 
night. Isn't this news? Even if 
the incident was caused by 
rumors it would be nice if you 
would inform the students 
whom you are supposed to 
serve. At least the radio 
station KNWD make a joke 
out of the whole situation. You 
didn't even mention it ! 

Sandra Kuplis 

(ED'S NOTE : The author of 
the letter is correct in stating 
that the CURRENT SAUCE is 
to keep students informed but 
that does not mean that we 
don't have a responsiblity to 
the readership. It would have 
served little purpose in the 
Oct. 4 issue to have run 
anything on the Sabine 
predicament as the publicity 
would have done no more than 
add to the ever growing rumor 
factory. This would not have 
been responsible journalism. 
What purpose or benefits 
would have been realized by 
gratifying the ego of the 
person or persons preying on 
the superstitions and misin- 
formations of the dorm 
residents. Adding to the 
confusion and hysteria is not 
responsible journalism thus it 
is not news. Co ) 

Dear Editor: 

We would like to address the 
following remarks to the 
residents of third floor West 
Sabine Hall: 

Thank you so much for 
showing your spirit during

splendid. We certainly ap- 

preciated the "togetherness" 
of our floor. 

Keep that spirit up!

Dear Editor 

With Christmas again 
rapidly approaching, we at 
Military Overseas Mail are 
concerned about the many 
thousands of our military 
personnel who will be away 
from their homes and families 
during the holiday season. For 
many of these young men and 
women this will be the first 
Christinas away from home. 

Readers of CURRENT 
SAUCE can help make this 
holiday season a little less 
lonely and a little more en- 
joyable for many of these 
young people by joining in the 
collection of Christmas mail 
sponsored by Military 
Overseas Mail. This is an ideal 
project for school classes, 
clubs, and other groups as 
well as individuals and 
families. For more in- 
formation, please send a 
stamped, self-addressed 
envelope to Military Overseas 
Mail, Box 4330, Arlington, Va.

Dear Editor: 

As a student not associated 
with the volleyball team, I 
would like to express my 
opinion concerning the 
discontinuation of this 
women's sport. Any sport on 
campus benefits the part- 
icipants and the remainder of 
the student body. The women 
that make up our volleyball 
team enjoy the sport. They 
promote school spirit and set 
forth an example for other 
students. Should we promote 
such a loss? I think not. 

Shannon Cole 

Dear Editor: 

Concerning volleyball's 
possible drop to club level— I 
think the administration 
should think twice. Volleyball 
is one of the fastest growing 
sports in the nation; the other 
is gymnastics. The ad- 
ministration succeeded in 
doing away with gymnastics 
completely after saying they 
were only dropping the sport 
to a club level. Now gymnasts 
don't even have a place to 
work out for drivers' 
education equipment is filling 
the gymnastics room. How 

I don't know about the other 
volleyball players, but I don't 
want a similar STUNT pulled 
concerning volleyball. I don't 
even understand the ad- 
ministration's reasoning 
behind having volleyball at 
the club level. There are too 
few people at this university to 
start discrimination. High 
school students choose a 
college by what it's like and 
what is offered. The only way 
to get quality is for the ad- 
ministration to open its eyes 
and increase budgets instead 
of cutting them back. NSU is 
backwards if they want to be 
rid of two interest drawing 
sports such as gymnastics and 

Please, students and ad- 
ministration, support these, 
for they'll help support this 
very university. 

Sincerely and concerned, 
Jill Hyatt 

Dear Editor: 

In reference to Dr. Carr's 
letter printed in the Current 
Sauce on October 4th, I have 
more than a few words I'd like 
to share with you. 

Although this is my first 
semester at NSU, I have 
followed their women's 
athletic program for some 
time. It never ceased to amaze 
me. This campus had some of 
the finest female athletes in 
the state. Contrary to popular 
belief, it still does. The 
volleyball team and basket- 
ball team possess a record 
that speaks for itself. 

Last fall I attended USL. 
Their program used to be a 
joke. But with determination 
and hussle, they have im- 
proved tremendously. The 
spirit on that campus for all 
athletic events is un- 
believable. Sure, they may 
"party" a lot, but they never 
let you down insofar as sup- 
port is concerned. Andy they 
are the ones aho've been on 
probation for the past three or 
four years! This hardly allows 
any pardon for NSU and their 
past behavior. 

On October 4th, NSU hosted 
a round robin tournament in 
the Major's Building. The 
crowd that turned out was far 
from expected. It is estimated 
that at least three hundred 
people attended, three hun- 
dred NSU students and 
faculty. It is almost un- 
believable to picture three 
hundred fans at any tennis 
match or baseball game. On 
October 28th, NSU will host 
another tournament. For 
those who feel that volleyball 
is an undeveloped or dying 
sport, I suggest that you at- 
tend to find out how little you 
really do know. 

I'd like to take each of the 
four points brought out in Dr. 
Carr's letter and comment on 

1. What programs are other 
insitutions offering? If he had 
even the slightest interest in 
women's athletics, he would 
know the answer to that. NSU 
has no more than any other 
university; maybe less cer- 
tainly no more. I suppose it 
was too much to exert a little 
effort to check that out, 

2. What is the availability of 
athletes in a particular sport? 
NSU has almost 100 percent 
Louisiana residents partici- 
pating in their women's 
athletic program.. It is my 
understanding that it has 
always been that way. Facts 
should be obtained before 
making such a statement. 

3. What are the cost factors? 
Any time a women's athletic 
team has to get up at 4:30 in 
the morning for a five hour

Unwilling to face ten years 
of repaying a loan with only 
meager earning prospects, 

Ann declared bankruptcy— 
that is, she went to court, told 
the judge she was unable to 
pay her debts, and asked to 
have them legally cancelled. 
Under bankruptcy law, which 
varies somewhat from state to 
state, a person declaring 
bankruptcy must turn over 
most of her assets to be 
distributed to her creditors— 

in Ann's case, this was the $65 
in her savings account. She 
handed over the $65 and left 
the courthouse legally free 
and clear of her $7,500 debt 

From 1974 to 1976, 12,300 
former students filed similar 
bankruptcy claims totaling 
$15 million borrowed through 
various government-funded 
loan programs. Is bankruptcy 
a sensible step if you are 
confronted with heavy college 
debts that your budget can't 

If you go through 
bankruptcy, you should 
remember that a report of 
your bankruptcy remains in 
your credit bureau file for 
fourteen years. This means 
that every time you apply for 
a charge account, bank loan or 
mortgage, the prospective 
lender will read about your 
bankruptcy. Some creditors 
may take into consideration 
the special circumstances 
surrounding your action (and 
by law you can write your own 
explanatory statement and 
have it placed in your credit 
report), but nevertheless, you 
may have trouble getting 
credit for a long time to come. 

Bankruptcy is a last resort 
for those clearly in a position 
in which they will never be 
able to repay their debts and 
carry on with their life; it is 
not meant for young men and 
women who find it temporatily 
inexpedient to meet debt 

All government loan 
programs encourage former 

students who are having 
trouble repaying educational 
loans to apply to their bank or 
college lenders for "for- 
bearance" — the term which 
is used when you ask an in- 
stitution to change the terms 
of your loan to make it easier 
for you to repay. For example, 
if you are scheduled to repay 
your loan in ten years with 
minimum payments of $30 a 
month, you can ask the bank 
to reduce your monthly 
payments to a more 
manageable level by 
spreading out payments over 
a longer period of time. Also 
note that new 1976 laws 
specifically provide for 
deferment of repayments for 
up to twelve months during 
any one period when you are 
unemployed and looking for 
full-time work. Student Loans 
and Bankruptcy: A Fact Sheet 

There are two very popular 
loan programs for higher 
education. One, the 
Guaranteed Student Loan 
Program (GSLP) lends up to 
$2,500 a year, with a 

maximym loan of $7,500 for 
undergraduates (including 
those taking vocational 
training) and $15,000 for un- 
dergraduates who then go on 
to do graduate work. Most of 
the lenders are banks, credit 
unions, savings and loan 
associations and state 
agencies; in a few cases, the 
college or unversity makes the 
loan directly. The Federal 
government reimburses the 
lender 100 percent if the 
student defaults. Repayment 
is required in ten years or less, 
with minimum payments of 
$30 a month, and usually 
begins within nine months 
after leaving the college 
program. A new law, which 
was enacted last year and 
which went into effect October 
1, 1977, prohibits any student 
with a GSLP loan from having 
it discharged through 
bankruptcy until at least five 
years after the required 
repayment period begins. 
There is talk in Congress, 
though, about repealing this. 

The other, the National 

celebration was held in June, 
1977 at Miami University with 
members of every chapter in 
the nation participating.

Direct Student Loan Program 
(NDSLP), lends up to $5,000 
for undergraduate education, 
$2,500 for certain vocational 
programs, and up to $10,000 
for undergraduate and 
graduate education. Under the 
DSLP, the school itself makes 
the loan with some 90 percent 
from the school. If the student 
defaults, the school is out its 10 
percent. Repayment is 
required in ten years or less, 
usually beginning within nine 
months after education is 
completed. Minimum 
payments are $30 a month. 

Filing for bankruptcy at any 
time is still a legal alternative 
for NDSLP loans. However, a 
New York State Appeals court 
ruled recently that even 
though a young man had 
declared bankruptcy, his 
NDSLP loan was exempt- 
that is, it was not cancelled. 
The ruling so far is applicable 
only in New York State, but is 
could have far-reaching ef- 
fects on potential bankruptcy 
cases in other states where 
NDSLP loans are involved.

you met the 
Grand Ecore 


(NOTE: The following 
article appeared in the 
CURRENT SAUCE on July 26, 
1957 and was written by Beth 
Smith. As yesterday was 
Halloween and the spirits 
walked the streets and 
roamed Grand Ecore Bluff, 
one may have encountered the 
ghost of Princess Gofachiqui 
who threw herself off the bluff 
in an act of love. Here is her 
story: ) 

Louisiana! The land of 
sunshine and flowers— the 
land of love and romance— the 
land of legends and folklore. 
Many legends have been 
passed down from generation 
to generation concerning 
different localities in the state. 
Grand Ecore, the high bluff 
which overlooks Red River, is 
one of these sites that has 
numerous legends and stories 
behind its history. 

One legend about this 
stately bluff near Nat- 
chitoches revolves around an 
Indian maiden whose 
tragically pathetic story 
occurred in the days when 
Louisiana was still being 

Don Fernando, a Spaniard, 
was on his way to bid farewell 
to the Indian friends he had 
found in this wilderness 
during his exploration. He sat 
at the bow of a canoe which 
was making its way down the 
stream known today as the 
Red River. The canoe shot 
quickly around the curve, 
bringing its occupants in view 
of Grand Ecore, a steep clear 
cut bluff rising majestically 
over the surrounding area. As 
the evening wind passed 
through the tree tops on the 
summit of the cliff, its 
melancholy cry was answered 
now and then by a bird's 
goodnight call. 

It was such an evening that 
Chief Quigualtauqui and his 
three hundred Chetimachas 
warriors had returned from a 
chase in the far region of the 
friendly Comanches. 

Don Fernando was moody 
for a while. Early on the next 
morning he was to leave this 
peaceful, solitary land. He 
was going to bid 
Quiqualtauqui and Princess 
Gofachiqui goodbye. The shy, 
graceful manner and the 
sprightly step of that queen of 
the winds brought back the 
image of his own patient 
Juanita, waiting for him in 

At the last meeting that 
night between Don Fernando 
and the Indians, each warrior 
rose to deliver his promise of 
friendship and faithfulness. 
When Tchioumaque's turn 

came, Don Fernando noticed a 
strange gleam in his eyes. The 
profuseness of his language 
and the seeming hollowness of 
tone could not but arouse the 
paleface's suspicion. The 
Spaniard rose to leave. The 
good luck wishes were ex- 
changed around the circle but 
Princess Gofachiqui and 
Tchioumaqui's places were 
vacant. The Don thought little 
of the absence of the brave, 
but he longed to see the Indian 

maiden again. 
When Don Fernando 

returned to his boat, the snap 
of a twig broke the stillness. A 
shadow darted from behind a 
tree. The nobleman asked a 
little anxiously! "Tachte 
cabanacet?" (Is it thou?) As 
the soft "Manatte" (Yes) was 
spoken, the figure stepped 
before him. In homage to his 
princess of the winds, the 

Castilian lord kissed 
Gofachiqui with the respect 
due his own Empress. 

As Gofachiqui turned away 
from the retreating craft 
lightly drifting with the 
current, the gleam of fiery 
eyes, aglow with hatred and 
jealousy riveted her to the 
spot. The flash of a knife lately 
stained in the chase filled her 
with terror. Up the hill she 
flew. Slowly, but surely, 
Tchioumaqui gained upon his 

Don Fernando climbed 
quietly into his boat. Turning 
to imprint in his memory one 
lasting image of that weird, 
moonbated land, he stood 
spellbound. The figure of a 
woman stood on the top of the 
bluff, dangerously near the 
edge. A brave was advancing 
toward her skillfully bran- 

command retreat honoring the 
veterans of the American Wards and 
Major Conflicts was held at 4:30 
p.m., Oct. 24. Participating in this 
observance of Veteran's Day were 
the NSU Corps Cadets, ROTC Cadets 






President Arnold R. Kilpatrick, and 
invited guests. The retreat began 
with a roll call of the wars, followed 
by a 2l-gun salute and the lowering 
of the flag. RETREAT and the 
National Anthem were played 
during the ceremony.

dishing his weapon, its smooth 
surface glistening in the 
moonlight. The knife was 
poised in the air for a moment, 
but before it could descend, a 
shrill cry rose to the heavens, 
echoing and re-echoing. The 
woman leaped into the air, fell 
down and struck the water 
with a heavy splash, disap- 
pearing beneath the surface of 
the water. 

As the LAS FLORES glided 
down the stream, the gentle 
motion of the waves told the 
ship that the spirit of the water 
was honoring its new-found 

Legends and folklore are 
part of Louisiana's heritage. 
These tales handed down 
through the years will live on 
as long as Grand Ecore and 
scenes like it remain in their 
stately and unchanging

she was able to go on an 
educational trip with her 
school to Quebec, Canada. Ms. 
Foster said some knowledge 
of the language was needed 
because some things were not 
in English. 

While traveling she likes to 
take pictures of the scenery. 
Another of her hobbies is 
playing tennis. 

She works in the press box 
for football games as a hostess 
in the V.I.P. section. She 
explained that she enjoyed 
doing this because of the 
people involved. 
Ms. Foster worked one year 
as Santa's Helper at a depart- 
ment store. She worked with 
children and took their pic- 
tures for Children's 
Photography Studio. 

For her talent number, she 
will play the "Summer of '42"

A Broadway song and dance 
number will be the talent of 
Becky Haskins, a secretarial 
administration major. The 
tune "Get Happy" will pay a 
tribute to Judy Garland. 

Ms. Haskins said one of her 
hobbies was cheering. She is 
presently an N.S.U. 
cheerleader and a member of 
the National Cheerleaders 
Association. She has been 
cheering since age 8 and 
started because she liked 
acrobatics. She said she 
wanted a means of release. 
She explained that she does 
things while she is cheering 
that she wouldn't do in another 

Ms. Haskins likes to dance 
and participate in gymnastics. 
She studied both in high school 
and will be helping to teach a 
modern dance class at N.S.U. 

She began taking lessons on 
the piano because her parents 
encouraged her, but later she 
wanted to learn. She was there 
was an organ in their home, 
but that it was hard to find an 
organ teacher. 

She has lived in Colorado, 
Houston, and now lives in 
Marrero, a town outside New 
Orleans. She enjoys traveling 
and plans to take a long 
honeymoon when that time 

One of her most interesting 
hobbies is that she collects 
pinecones. She thinks that 
they are cute. 

Ms. Haskins said this about 
the pageant, "I entered for the 
chance to meet new girls. You 
get to know them in a short 
time. I like to try different 
things. I also like to dress up 
and smile." 

She is being sponsored by 
Computer Science Club. 

Marie Hebert, a sophomore 
from Opelousas will do a jazz 
dance for her talent. The title

education classes. She has 
danced in Miami, New Orle- 
ans and New York. 

She likes to do gymnastic 
routines and was on the team

Demons win tournament 

The NSU Lady Demon 
volleyball team, behind the 
All-Tournament per- 
formances of Gail Brown and 
Sheilsa Credeur, swept their 
own tournament Friday and 
Saturday, culminating the two 
day event with a victory over 
tough USL 15-6, 15-13, 13-15, 9- 
15, 15-13. 

The tournament, held in the 
Health & P.E. Majors 
Building, was divided into two 
pools with the winner from 
each pool playing the runner- 
up in the other pool. The Lady 
Demons won their pool by 
disposing of the McNeese 
Cowboys 13-15, 15-1, 15-5, 15-9. 
Nicholls State was the next to 

fall but they made it a battle 
as NSU garnished a very tight 
6-15, 15-11, 15-5, 8-15, 17-15 
victory. USL took the other 
pool victory by defeating La. 
Tech and Northeast. 

NSU reached the finals by 
taking an easy 15-11, 15-9, 15-7 
victory over the Northeast 
Indians in semifinal play. By 

the same token USL defeated 
Nichols to advance to the 
finals by a 15-9, 154, 10-15, 15- 
12 count. 

The final between NSU and 
USL was a close, well-fought 
battle. The Lady Demons took 
the first two games by 15-6, 15- 
13 tallies only to have the 
Ragin' Cajuns take the next 
two 13-15, 9-15. The final game 
was close all the way as NSU 
was down 12-13 and took the 
next three points to capture 
the win. 

In third place play Nicholls 
State lost the first game and 
then took three in a row to 
snag third over Northeast 14- 
16, 15-6, 15-7, 15-5. In the 
consolation bracket McNeese 
defeated La. Tech 17-15, 15-13, 
8-15, 15-13. 

Others making the All- 
Tourney team besides NSU's 
Brown and Credeur were 
Marilyn Henry and Donna 
Locantro from USL and Tina 
Satterlee and Liz Candelora 
from Nicholls. 

The Lady Demons will 
travel to Thibodeaux Thur- 
sday to participate in the state 
tournament. Also competing 
in the tournament will be state

"Our squad's attitude may 
be at an all-time high," 
Hildebrand said while 
discussing his squad's 
preparation for their Nov. 26 
opener against powerful 
Nevada-Las Vegas. "The 
attitude of every individual is 
tremendous, and everybody 
wants to work hard in order to 
get ready for the season." 

Hildebrand, entering his 
13th season as basketball boss 
of the Demons, has a total of 14 
returnees and recruits along 
with six walk-ons entering the 
third week of practice for the 
1977-78 season. 

"We emphasized our team 
offense, team fast break, 
shooting, fundamentals and 
conditioning during our first 
week," Hildebrand said. "We 
had a good pre-season training 
routine, so our squad came in 
good shape." 

Hildebrand said that the 
squad would continue to stress 
those facets this week and 
would add in team defense and 
special situations. 

"We accomplished more 
than I thought we would 

during the first week," said 
Hildebrand. "The squad was 
very attentive and appeared 
to be eager to learn, which is 
always a good sign when you 
have so many new people." 

Hildebrand, along with 
assistant coach Dr. Derwood 
Duke and graduate assistant 
Ralph Pirn, has three starters 
back from last season but only 
two other experienced hands 
on the entire squad. There are 
five incoming scholarship 
freshmen and three transfers 
among the squad. 

"Although our squad is not 
large, there is good com- 
petition for positions," 
Hildebrand said. "Everybody 
is having to work hard in order 
to hold positions." 

The Demons have two pre- 
season activities scheduled 
prior to the Nov. 26 opener. 
The squad will hold its annual 
Purple-White Scrimmage on 
Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Prather

numerous concerts 
throughout the region. He

Are your study habits good? 

Are you the kind of student 
who usually studies hard 
before going to bed, or the 
kind who goes to bed, sets the 
alarm for five or six o'clock 
and then crams? If you're a 
presleep studier, GLAMOUR 
Magazine reports you may be 
getting better grades as a 
result of your study habits 
than someone who does the 
work afterward. 

Recent research into sleep 
and study habits shows that 
sleep prior to study disrupts 
memory significantly, unless 
considerable waking time is 
allowed before digging into 
the material you want to 
learn. The shorter the period 
of sleep that precedes the 
studying, the more this sleep 
disrupts learning. Sleeping 

four hours or less was found to 
be highly disturbing to 
memory; sleeping six hours 
disturbed it less. 

Researchers aren't exactly 
sure how sleep disturbs the 

memory process, but they 
believe it might involve 
hormones. In laborarory tests 
on mice, the hormone 
somatotrophin, produced 
naturally during sleep,

The Natchitoches Parish Chamber of 
Commerce will once again sponsor a 
University Blood Drive at NSU, 
Monday, Nov. 14 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., 
according to Rich Harrington, coor- 
dinator of blood drives for the Cham- 

Faculties for the blood drive will be 
set up in the Student Union Ballroom. 

Students who donate blood will not 
only have their needs covered for a 
year but will also cover their families 

There is a need for educating people 
to the fact that voluntary blood drives 
are important. Those persons who 
donate blood and their families are 
covered and when an entire area 
participates in a blood bank and meets 
their quarterly goal, all persons in the 
area are covered. 

Persons donating a pint of blood will 
receive, in addition to the traditional 
glass of orange juice or coke, a gift 
packet. Ben Carson, president of the 
Chamber of Commerce, said the 
packets contain discount coupons from 
the following Natchitoches businesses: 
Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDonald's, 
Coca Cola, Robo Car Wash, Sibley's 
Washateria, Pizza Inn, Pizza Hut and 
Cotton Patch. 

Coordinating the University Blood 
drive with the Chamber are Dr. 
Richard Galloway, vice president of 
student affairs, Robert W. Wilson, 
director of the student Union, David 
Walker, SGA president and Leigh 
Perkins, SUGB president. 

Students are urged to participate in 
this worthy cause.

Richie Lecea was born June 22, 1946, 
in Long Beach, California. At the age of 
ten he received his first guitar from his 
father, an accomplished violinist. He 
formed his own group in high school 
called "The Pharoahs" and played all 
the school dances. 

After high school, Richie joined the 
group Shango. Signed by A&M Records, 
they recordded a spoof of California 
earthquake lore entitled "Day After 
Day." The single became a national hit 
and was later purchased by Chevrolet 
and made a part of their 1970 ad- 
vertising campaign. 

Richie continued to work with Shango 
writing, singing and playing guitar. 
However, his goal was to develop a solo 
act that "had to be better than great" 
before he would be satisfied. After 
writing more than 40 songs with Lynn 
Lecea, Richie was signed by 20th 
Century Music. As a result of his songs 
entitled "She's a Bad Woman." 

In the summer of 1973 Lecea recorded 
his debut album "Magic," with 
producer Jim Golden of Wooden Nickel

LECEA RETURNS— Richie Lecea, who performed here last fall,

scheduled for tomorrow night. Lecea, who is a guitarist, claims 
that his life is devoted to writing and performing songs for people. 
This concert is sponsored by the Big Name Entertainment

campus by serving as a link between 
the students and the administration and 
by establishing a line of communication 
between the students and the SGA at 
the Natchitoches campus. 

According to David Walker, SGA

Senate seat on the SGA to represent the 
Warrington campus. The seat will be 
filled according to the criteria 
designated by the Warrington Campus

Country music discussed 

:e cream 

Banana Split* 



Participants in a seminar on country- 
western music last week were told that 
the music is increasing in popularity 
because its lyrics "reflect a return to 
the simple things in life." 

Townsend Miller, country music 
columnist for the American Statesman 
in Austin, Tex., said, "Country music 
began to come back to the people in the 
early 1970's when the musicians 
decided to turn back to the simple 
things in life." He said, "There were no 
causes that people have chosen to go 
back to the natural... to the coun- 
try.. .back to basic human emotions." 

Frank Page, administrative assistant 
at KWKH Radio in Shreveport and co- 
owner of the Louisiana Hayride stage 
show, told seminar audiences, 
"Country music started out to be the 
music of the average people, the blue 
collar people. Those people have been 
elevated.. .and country music has since 
had to elevate itself. More importantly, 
young people have begun to like it." 
MiLcr said young people have accepted 
country-western music because of its 
progressive sound, which he said 
originated in Austin, Tex. 

"Progressive country music 
developed about five years ago in 
Austin," Miller stated. "Nobody knows 
why, and a lot of people are still 
mystified about its origin. Austin has 

become a colony of musicians. Willie 
Nelson lives there. Musicians from all 
over the United States come to Austin to 

Miller said the musicians like Austin . 
"because it is a very non-competetive 
environment. There are no agents, no 
recording studios and no publishing 

He said Nelson began the progressive 
movement in country-western music 
when he moved from Nashville to 
Austin in July of 1972. 

"Through the 60's and early 70's there 
wasn't a place to put him in Nashville 
because his music fit into a different 
classification," said Miller, "so he 
packed up and came to Austin, where 
he made a deliberate change in his 
personal image to capture the 20 to 30- 
year-old audience." 

Miller said Nelson "tapped the 
audience where the money was. And all 
he wanted was to have his music 
heard." Page recalled that Nelson 
performed at the Louisiana Hayride in 
the 1940's. "He was traditional then," 
said Page, "but then he went 'hippy' 
and is making more money than he 
ever did. 

Page said the Louisiana Hayride 
"had 23 people that are now in the 
Country Music Hall Lobby. ; 8 et their 
start in Shreveport on our show. We 

eventually lost them. If you want to 
keep them around, you have got to have 
some management people, publishers 
and recording companies." 

The rock'n roll years of the 1960's 
virtually shut the Hayride down, said 
Page, who added, "When we opened it 
again in 1973, we did it right. We got us 
our own recording company, our own 
lable and two publishing companies." 

Other participants in the Nor- 
thwestern seminar sponsored by the 
Distinguished Lecture Series were 
Roland Pippin, a sociologist and 
frequent speaker on the country music; 
Merlin Mitchell, an authority on folk 
influence in country music, and Dr. Bill 
Malone, Tulane University professor 
and author of "Country Music, USA." 

Pippin said, "Urbanization has been 
one of the real reasons for the increase 
in popularity of country music, because 
most rural people who move to the 
urban areas have roots in country 

Malone emphasized the effect of 
blues on country music. "The influence 
of Black music, or blues, or country 
music goes back even before the United 
States became a society," he said. 
"Blues music and all of its variations 
have touched and influenced country 

on piano, and Dean Parks on electric 
guitar. The same combination of 
talents has produced his second album, 
"It's All Done With Mirrors." 

Lecea not only possesses a unique 
and distinctive talent but also a strong 
desire for "Stardom." He hopes for 
"star influence" for different reasons 
than many aspiring artists. One of his 
beliefs is that stars have a respon- 
sibility to share their gifts. 

Someone once said that artists are 
giving love and that is exactly how 
Lecea feels. "Caring is Love, and to 
me, that's what it is all about." 

The concert is being sponsored by the 
Big Name Entertainment Committee of 
the SUGB. 

VE DAY— Over 125 students from around the state participated in 
the annual Vocational Exploration Day sponsored by the External 
Affairs office. Students were given a chance to become acquainted 
with life at NSU, possible career choices, and were given an op- 
portunity to talk with different professors about curriculums. 

Mother's Finest cancels 

"Mother's Finest," an up and coming 
rock and roll bank, has cancelled their 
engagement to perform at NSU, ac- 
cording to Mike Alost, SUGB Big Name 
Entertainment chairman. 

The group, scheduled to perform 
Wednesday, Nov. 9, had to cancel 

because they are in the process ot 
recording an album for Epic Records, 
according to their personal manager, 
Ken Hewitt. All their concert dates 
through Nov. 11 have been cancelled. 
Epic Records is attempting to release 

a Mother's Finest album on the market 
by the first of the year and requires that 
the group be in the stadio for the next 
week, Alost commented. 

Richie Lecea, the other scheduled 
act, will perform on Nov. 9, Alost said.

'Save the best for last' 

There seems to be some truth to the old adage "save the 
best till last" or at least that seems to be the idea behind the 
Student Union Governing Board programming this semester. 

The Union Board began the semester with their semesterly 
Howdy dance featuring JETT during Orientation week. The 
dance was a tremendous success as was the movie presen- 
tation that week. These two programs laid a good foundation 
for building the fall program. 

Problems with booking agents and calendar conflicts 
hindered several committees in planning their programs. 
This is evidenced in the recently publicized concert with 
"Mother's Finest". Scheduled for Nov. 9, the group had a 
recording conflict and had to cancel the engagement. The 
committee will still feature Richie Lecea. This performance 
is slated for Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 8 pjn. 

On October 26, the SUGB sponsored the" Robber 
Bridegroom," a Broadway musical hit. Though many did not 
attend the performance, persons in attendance were treated 
to a unique form of entertainment. The play, full of humor 
and innovative techniques, kept the audience not only en- 
tertained but gave them opportunity to laugh at some of their 
traditions. (The play took place in Rodney, Miss, on the 
Natchez Trace and consequently quaint, old Southern tradi- 
tions were sprinkled throughout the play.) 

On November 1, the Lagniappe Committee presented 
Johnny Porazzo in concert. Once again, the number of 
students in attendance were not great, but the performance 
was top quality. 

Porazzo is a charismatic performer with the ability and 
talent to interact with his audience in a positive, productive 

The annual Lady of the Bracelet pageant is scheduled for 
Wednesday, Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m. Denise Gueringer, the 
reigning queen, will crown her successor after an evening of 

When students return from Thanksgiving holidays, the 
Music and Films committee will show the Schlitz Movie 
Orgy, Dec. 1. Siglinda Steinfuller, the "dean of beer" for the 
brewing company, will be in attendance at this program. On 

Dec. 2, the committee will feature "Let's Do It Again." 

The SUGB will close its programming year with the 
Christmas Lights Concert featuring B.J. Thomas. The show 
will open with the very funny comedy team Edmunds and 
Cur ley. 

The SUGB has had quality programs this semester but 
students are not attending. The only SUGB sponsored 
program students attend with regularity and in large 
numbers is the films. 

Students, you are wasting your money by not attending 
Union Board sponsored activities. Every semester you pay $1 
for Union Board drama and $6.50 for Union Board activities. 
With the money generated, movies are shown; concerts, 
dances and plays are sponsored; and various other projects 
are planned and featured. 

If students do not attend these functions, they are wasting 
their own money. And, in today's world, with today's cost of 
living, who can afford to throw money away? 

Let's correct the figures 

In composing last week's article for this column, this editor 
stated there was a $26 fee increase in the proposed 
Warrington Place By-laws. This statement was in error as 
there is actually only a $17.25 increase 

If the students at Warrington accept the proposed by-laws, 
they would vote to return to paying the $41.50 fee assessment 
for the SGA they have paid until this fall semester. (This fall 
students at Warrington paid only $24.25.) Consequently, an 
increase in fees from this fall will be generated, though in 
actuality, students will be voting to restore a fee they 
previously paid. 

The $26 figure this editor used in computing the projected 
operating budget for the SGA-Warrington Campus Council 
(WCC— as it is now named) was correct in that this amount 
will be allocated from the $41.50 fee for use by the WCC. Only 
an additional $17.25 would be added to the total costs for 
registration fees, room, insurance and SGA assessments. 
This would bring the total cost to $499.75, the value of a full 
scholarship according to the proposed by-laws. 

The total operating budget projected for next spring would 
. remain the same— $7592 ( 202 students times $26). The WCC 

PORAZZO is charismatic 

What is a Johnny Porazzo? 
He is a dynamic, innovative 
entertainer who performed 
November 1 at NSU under the 
sponsorship of the SUGB 
Lagniappe Committee. 

Performing with a five 
member band, Porazzo did 
more than just sing and play 
the piano. He communicated 
with his audience during his 
performance. At times this 
communication was not just 
musical. "We're from the 
South, but we're just a little bit comfortable 
north-south of you," Porazzo promotions," 
said. "They don't have a 
movie house where we come 

Porazzo performed several 
numbers from his albums; 
some rock and roll, some 
gospel, and some mellow 

In an interview after the 
concert Porazzo displayed 
more of his excellent sense of 

One of the members of his 
band quipped, "What do you 
expect-they just legalized 

He has been touring the 
college circuit, for about a 
year and a half. "We have had 
good luck with college audien- 
ces, though we feel more 
with private 
Porazzo said. 
The reason is that it is possible 
to establish better rapport 
with your audience. 

"But, we 

have been really fortunate 
with colleges," he stated. 
The group has five albums 

"in the can" (finished) which 
were sold several weeks ago. 
They are preparing a sixth 
album for release in 
February. They record for a 
studio in Miami Beach. 
Criterion on Demand Records 
(a new label). 

When asked how he gauges 
an audience's response he 
said, "I play it by ear. 
Sometimes what we do click, 
sometimes it doesn't. We 
perform with no set format." 

Porazzo further explained 
that if a performer would 
combine business aspects with 
contributing to the audience's 
entertainment he would have 
it all together. This is one 
reason why the group does not 
have a set format. Porazzo 

prefers interaction with the 

"I finished high school 
through a correspondence 
course. I am not cut out for 
college.. .could not handle all 
that scheduling... I would 
probably have to drop out," 
Porazzo commented. 

The band has been together 
for about a year and they all 
had from the South though 
they have lived all over the 
world. Members are Frank 
Richardson-keyboards; Mark 
Spear-steel guitar; David 
Goldenhiemmer, bass; 
Marvin King-lead guitar; and 
Billy Pitts-drums. 

Johnny Porazzo is definitely 
the next up and coming per- 
former on the music scene. 

Readers comment 

PORAZZO— Johnny Porazzo is an up and coming 
entertainer on the music scene who performed at 
NSU last week. Giving a dynamic, high-energy 
performance, Porazzo amazed his audience with 
this musical versality. 

Dear Editor: 

On behalf of the Student 
Union- Governing Board, I 
would like to recognize and 
thank the following 
organizations for 
the assistance they gave the 
Board in loading and 
unloading for the musical 
presentation the "Robber 
Bridegroom" Wednesday Oct. 
26— Purple Jackets, Blue Key, 
Kappa Sigma Fraternity, and 
other interested persons. 

The assistance rendered by 
these groups helped make the 

Leigh Perkins. President 
Student Union Governing 

would award one full scholarship and four half scholarships 
bringing the scholarship expense total to $1499.25. 

There is no provision for traveling expenses for the 
Warrington-Senator per se, though there is a provision made 
for any traveling expense approved by the body (WCC). 

The projected $383.60 in travel expenses stipulated last 
week is not an applicable operating expense. 

The scholarship expense comprises approximately 20 
percent of the budget with $5092.75 remaining in the budget 
for other expenses. 

It was called to this editor's attention that students at 
Warrington campus did not understand the reason for last 
week's article. The article was written to call to students' 
attention the fact that they would vote an increase upon 
themselves, be it $17.25 or $26. Too often in our modern world, 
hidden fees and-or increases are buried in lengthy, wordy 
documents. Upon receipt of a bill or the like, one is surprised 
to see an increased figure not previously planned for. The 
sole purpose of the article was to keep students informed and 
aware of the fee increase so that no one could say they did not 
know at some later date. 

Vote for 
amendments 1 and 2 

After weeks of consultations, writing, rewriting, and leng- 
thy discussions, the SGA passed two constitutional amend- 
ments which would create the Warrington Campus Council 
(WCC) and a senate seat for a Warrington campus 

As stated last week, there is a definite need for the for- 
mation of the WCC. The nursing students exist in an 
academic environment which is completely different from 

For example, no more than half their student body is on 
campus on any one day. This means, in terms of SGA elec- 
tions, no more than half of the students are afforded an op- 
portunity to vote as the SGA only holds an one day election. 
The WCC would have a coordinator of elections whose 
., responsibility it would be to schedule elections in coor- 
dination with the SGA commissioner of elections so that 
every student is afforded an opportunity to vote. 

Many of the Warrington problems are unique and often (as 
apparent during earlier discussions between the senate and 
the Warrington representatives) it is hard for Natchitoches 
students to fully grasp the significance of thier situation. 

Acting president David Humphrey has pointed out 
repeatedly that there is a need for some type of organized 
public relations community relations program at 
Warrington. NSU does not provide an extensive recruiting 
program for the baccalaureate degree program. The WCC 
would form committees and organize programs and projects 
to facilitate these specialized needs. 

The WCC would serve as a communication link and as a 
mechanism through which Warrington students could ap- 
proach the administration on an organized and viable basis. 

The proposed senate seat would provide a communication 
link between the Warrington students and the SGA, thus 
keeping SG A totally and continually aware of the nursing 
students sometimes they tend to overlook these 292 students 
in their plans and programs.) 

The students at the Warrington campus has paid SGA fees 
for years, but they have never had a representative to the 
organization. In a way, this situation is similar to the position 
the United States was in over 200 years ago. A hue and cry 
arose in the colonies because they paid taxes to the mother 
country England but had no say or voice in the House of 
Commons. They demanded representation. 

Though the Warrington students have not gone about 
crying "Taxation without representation is tyranny," they 
have a valid case for requesting a senate position, they are 
not asking for something absurd or impractical just their 

The Warrington students are a viable part of our Univers- 
ity community. Can we demand if in their position? 

This editor urges students to follow the lead set by the 
senate and vote for the proposed Amendments 1 and 2 to the 
SGA Constitution. 


SGA at a glance 

Next Monday, the Chamber of Commerce will once more 
conduct its University Blood Drive. In the past, the turn out 
of students at NSU has been scanty compared with the 
number of students on campus on any one day. 

Though there are students who are not allowed to donate 
blood for various medical reasons, most students do not 
participate because they are scared of the sight of their own 
blood or the needle or the idea itself —this is understandable. 
But. fear is no reason a student should shun participation in 
such a worthwhile project. 

The pint of blood you donate may save someone's life. In 
your small way, through a pint of blood, you may become a 

It is not easy to overcome a fear; I know, I dislike needles 
immensely. Last March, though, with one hand gripping the 
side of the cot, I donated my first pint. 

I still have a healthy respect for needles but now I have an 
even healthier respect for myself. 

It is not a painful ordeal; the slight pain you experience 
when the needle is injected is gone before you know it. 

Think about it. I hope I see you in line Nov. 14 preparing to 
donate a pint of blood.

LOB: D-Day nearing 

With the Nov. 17 Lady of the Bracelet 
Pageant nearing, the contestants find 
themselves involved in a frenzied flurry 
of rehearsing. What kind of girl enters 
such a pageant that demands so much 
time and patience in the middle of an 
academic semester? Here are five such 
girls and their reactions on being 1977 
LOB contestants: 

Venetia Lee, a Veterinary 
Technology and Equine Science major 
from Shreveport finds herself quite 
busy but thoroughly enjoying every 
minute of preparation for the pageant. 

Because of the encouragement of 
many of her friends, Ms. Lee decided to 
*ter LOB. "It's very time consuming, 
but I am enjoying every minute of it", 
she commented. "I am very thankful 
for the encouragement and support of 
my friends." 

Ms. Lee's hobbies include rodeo 
riding, oil painting, and modeling. 
Involved in the Equine Science 

program, it is not surprising that the 
young coed loves horses. 

Tap dancing will be the talent of 
Debbie Nichols, a Marketing major 
from Many. 

Ms. Nichols has taken tap dance, 
jazz, and ballet for thirteen years. "I 
love to entertain people," she said. 
"The talent competition is my favorite 
part of the pageant." 

sponsored by the Wesley Foundation. 

"I have discovered that the pageant 
is a good way to meet new people," she 

For her talent, Ms. Rogers will sing 
"I Believe". She enjoys singing, 
playing the piano, and almost anything 

music. She was the recepient of the 
scholastic award in the Junior Miss 
Pageant in Houma. 

Ms. Lee operated her own dance Cooking Mexican dishes is the 

school in Many for two years. She loves speciality of Debbie Price, a Nursing 

to dance and collects dolls from dif- major from Carthage, Texas, 
ferent countries. 

Sponsored by Pi Omega Pi in this 
year's LOB pageant, Ms. Lee was 
chosen Miss Sabine Parish in 1975 and 
was third runner-up in the Miss Nat- 
chitoches Pageant this year. 

A musically oriented contestant, 
Janice Rogers is in her first semester at 
Northwestern. The Vocal Music 
Education major from Houma is 

"I entered the pageant because I feel 
that it is a good way to make new 
friends", she commented. 

For her talent Ms. Price will play the 
clarinet. Her hobbies include cooking, 
shopping, and playing the clarinet. She 
also loves animals. 

Melanie Jones, another LOB con- 
testant, was unavailable for comment. 

REALLY?? Denise Gueringer 
expresses interest at the LOB 
acceptance tea earlier in the 
semester. Miss Gueringer, 
reigning Lady of the Bracelet, 
will relinquish her crown later 
this month.

Mrs. Taylor is exceptional person 

By Jackie Dees 

Mrs. Homer Lee Taylor, an 
82 year old IET major, has an 
interesting philosophy on life. 
"I spend half my time tending 
to my own business and the 
other half letting other people 
take care of theirs." 

Mrs. Taylor is working 
toward an associate degree in 

woodworking technology and 
will complete all of her course 
work this semester. 

Mrs. Taylor was born in 
Oklahoma, Texas on January 
11, 1895. She presently lives in 
Coushatta and attends NSU 
two days a week. Even though 
she has almost completed her 

degree, Mrs. Taylor plans to 
take more lab classes at NSU 
after graduation in May. 

Wood technology hasn't 
been Mrs. Taylor's only in- 
terest during her life. She has 
owned a skating rink, owned a 
flower shop, ran a theatre, ran 
a grocery store, and she built 
a sandwich shop in her 
backyard which still exists in 
Coushatta today. 

Mrs. Taylor has used her 
knowledge of woodworking to 
re- finish the interior of her 
home, design and build a sign 
<-for an elementary school in 
Georgia, build a bookstand for 
the Red River Parish Library 
construct an oak dining table, 
and design and build a foldup 
rocking chair. She also 
repaired her roof (with a 
ladder she built herself), and 
"I got laughed at about that 
one," she said. 

After everyone bragged on 
the oak table Mrs. Taylor de- 
cided she needed some further 
instruction on the operation 
and care of woodworking 
equipment. A friend informed 
her of NSU's IET Department 
and she enrolled at NSU the 
Fall semester of 1974, after 
much encouragement from 
Dr. Nedom C. Muns, head of 
the department. 


472-8546 (LOCAL CALL) 

Lee Taylor, 82 years old, is currently enrolled at 
NSU. She is working toward an associate degree 
in woodworking technology and says she likes 
everthing about NSU.

"I like everything about 
NSU, including students, 
campus, teachers,— 
everything, and last but not 
least, Dr. Nedom Muns is 
tops," Mrs. Taylor stated. She 
said that at first she was 
skeptical as to how everyone 
would treat her, but she hasn't 
any doubts now. 

Mrs. Taylor recently at- 
tended Senior Citizens Day at 
the Shreveport State Fair 
where she represented NSU. 
She had her own display of a 
Mediterranean chair, a 
Masonic jewel holder, and a 

foldup rocker. 

Various newspaper articles 
have been written on Mrs. 
Taylor and Channel 12 in 
Shreveport did a news special 
of her in the wood lab. A news 
station in New Orleans picked 
up the broadcast and gave it to 
nationwide coverage, and 
Mrs. Taylor has since 
received letters from people 
all across the U.S. The 
January 1976 issue of Modern 
Maturity magazine wrote a 
story on her where they stated 
that the "octogenarian uses 
university tools with expertise 

few students match." 

Dr. Nedom Muns said, 
"Mrs. Taylor is a very ex- 
ceptional person. She is an 
inspiration to our students in 
that she has untiring efforts to 
improve herself and not settle 
for second best." He also said 
that "other people see her 
desire to achieve and it causes 
them to recognize the oppor- 
tunity they have at the present 
to achieve what she never

According to Wilkes, the 
legislature has charged the 
State Department of 
Education with the respon- 
sibility for implementing the 
law. School systems have until 
June of 1978 to submit their 
plans for implementation to 
the legislature's Joint Com- 
mittee on Education.

Freedom of Information 


Do journalists go too far?* 

La. T 

Do journalists sometimes go 
too far in searching for facts? 
This was one of the things 
discussed at the "Freedom of 
Information" forum 
November 2, sponsored by the 
NSU chapter of the Society of 
Professional Journalists, 
Sigma Delta Chi. 

A panel of four guests at the 
forum held an informal dis- 
cussion on topics in 
professional journalism. The 
panel consisted of Ron Grant, 
assistant metro-editor of the 
Alexandria Town Talk; John 
Makar, a Natchitoches lawyer 
and part owner of newspapers 
in the New Orleans area; 
Wray Post, newsman of 
KSLATV in Shreveport; and 
Stan Tiner, editor of the 
Shreveport Journal. 

Mr. Grant, who researched 
a pamphlet for Sigma Delta 
Chi on "Freedom of In- 
formation for the Public's 
Sake," said that we do not

have a sunshine law, loosely 
termed, in Louisiana. He said 
that a sunshine law, (Act No. 
665 dealing with open and 
closed meetings), says that 
public bodies must hold all 
meetings and discussions 
open. Mr. Grant said that the 
legislature restricts this act in 
certain ways and we have a 
limited sunshine law. 

Mr. Grant said that closed 
sessions may be held in 
emergencies endangering life 
or massive property 
destruction, or personnel 
matters such as hiring and 
firing. He also said, however, 
that he has had no particular 
problems with this and that "I 
can easily live within the 
present laws." 

Mr. Tiner discussed 
problems that the Shreveport 
Journal has had in obtaining 
information and he said "You 
almost need to be a lawyer to 
deal with American jour- 
nalism today." Mr. Tiner said 
that reporters cannot do any 
more than the law provides for 
but they should do all that they 
can do within the law. He also 
said that his newspaper was 
going to go through every step 
within the law to get in- 

In discussing whether or not 
journalists sometimes go too 
far in searching for facts, Mr. 
Tiner said that perhaps 
sometimes they do, but 
whenever someone steps into 
public view they are fair 

The lawyer viewpoint from 
John Makar was that jour- 
nalists should also consider 
their moral responsibility to 
the public. He said he believed 
the press should not go too far 
in getting, personal in- 
formation just because it 
could sell newspapers 

Mr. Makar said that too 
much publicity often 
determines whether or not a 
person accused of a crime can 
get a fair trial. He also said 
that the longer a case is 
delayed the less chance the 
person has of being convicted. 

Mr. Grant disagreed with 
the thought that publicity in- 
fluences a jury. He said that a 
jury will usually weigh facts 
carefully when presented 
before them, no matter how 
much publicity is in- 

"As far as I'm concerned. 

freedom of information is a 
beautiful expression," stated 
Wray Post, newsman from 
KS LA-TV. He said that there 
is never any easy way to get 
important information and 
reporters usually have to fight 
for it. Mr. Post also said that 
he believed newspapers 
should have the right to keep 

their sources of information especially government 

In giving advice to NSU 
journalists, Mr. Grant said, 
"Become familiar with the 
legal aspects of your 
profession." He said that an 
important weapon for jour- 
nalists is to know as much as 
they can about other things, 



Mr. Tiner stated, "I thin, Kentu

also said he believed tin Arkar

From the Sidelines 

The NFL has passed the midway point, ar£ 
there are a few mild surprises. But, time will 
tell as upstart teams usually wear themselves 
down in the heat of division races. The 
number one upstart team of the season is the 
Denver Broncos. They have used a lot of luck 
and very little skill to post a successful first 
half record. Now that other teams won't be 
surprised by them, look for a fast fade back 
into the pack totally ruled by the Oakland 

The second surprise is the resurgence of the 
Cleveland Browns. With a few breaks they 
could sneak through the crowd and take the 
division crown. But, as the weather grows 
colder, the Pittsburgh defense gets meaner 
and it will be tough to dethrone the Steelers. 
However, Cleveland is not just a flash in the 
pan like Denver and must be reckoned with 
from now on as a solid contender. 

The only other major surprise of the NFL 
season is the utter weakness of the NFC. With 
the exception of the Dallas Cowboys the best 
team in all of football, the conference is ex- 
tremely weak. St. Louis, Minnesota, Los 
Angeles, and Washington have all crumbled 
from their once mighty stations. This in itself 

would not be so unusual, but none of "* 
weaker teams have moved up to take! 
place of champions. This leaves a mud 
situation where everyone beats evetf 
else. Where there can be no acC 
prediction for any given Sunday game, 
where a poor record such as 9-6 will proB 
win a division race. 

An example of this situation is the 
Orleans Saints. With the weakening of the* 
Angeles Rams, a perfect situation 
arise for a hungry young team to es- 
themselves and become winners. But no' 
Saints. Instead, they choose to wallow Sv*\ 
after Sunday in their own haplessness. ™ 
Stram has devised many cute formation* I

The first touchdown of the 

night was set up by a 54 yard 
punt return by Willie B.

was just a matter of punching 
it out as quarterback Kenny

The 23-year-old "Crazy 
George" has performed 
throughout the world starting 
in his hometown of Wickliffe, 
Ohio. He attended Ashland 
College in Ohio for one year 
before transferring with his 
famous coach Bill Musselman 
to the University of Minnesota 
where he graduated in 1974. At 
Minnesota Schauer was the 
feature attraction of the 
nation's most colorful pre- 
game show, where he first 
displayed his talents on a 
large scale. 

"Crazy George" has also 
performed with the Munich 
Eagles of the European 
Basketball League and for a 
brief time with the San Diego 
Sails of the ABA. 

Schauer has set a goal of 
making one million people 
smile with his basketball, and 
the famous motivational 
speaker and entertainer has 
totaled over 400,000 since 
graduating from college. 
Writers have described his 
show as one of the most 
creative, colorful and in- 
spiring basketball ex- 
travaganzas ever presented. 

Peebles was good and the first 
quarter ended in a 7-7 tie. 

The second 'Poke score 
resulted from a flurry of 
Demon mistakes. The first 
came when a McFarland punt 
to Willie B. Mosley was 
fumbled at the Cowboy 35 and 
Rick Ortego hustled down the 
field to cover the ball for 
McNeese. NSU's "Tasmanian 
Devil" defense held and 
forced another punt by Mc- 
Farland. This time the 
Demons Willie Washington 
was unable to stop and the 
'Pokes were awarded 15 yards 
and a first down for roughing 
the kicker. It appeared the 
Demon defense was going to 
hold again as kicker Peebles 
was going to attempt a held 
goal from the NSU 17. Only 
problem was it really wasn't a 
field goal attempt as holder 
Jim Morvant rolled right and 
lofted a touchdown pass to 
Mac Barousse. Peebles added 
the point after and ended the 
scoring for the night. 

"I hate that we had to end 
the home season with our only 
loss before the home crowd," 
said a disappointed A.L. 
Williams, "But we just didn't

elaborate in the Southeast, 
offering an Associate degree 
in Meat Science Technology 
and hopefully, a food in- 
spection program. 

The NSU farm is a teaching 
laboratory allowing students 
practical experience in the 
day to day operations of a 

Students are learning the 
different aspects of Horse 
management such as 

breeding, riding, care, and the 
showing of horses. 

The farm has a veterinary 
technology program enabling 
students to learn how to detect 
and treat animal illnesses. Dr. 
Sandra MacKenzie, Dr. of 
Veterinary medicine, is in 
charge of this program. 

Students can also ex- 
perience the aspects of both 
swine and cattle operations. 
The NSU farm is stocked with

Experiments are conducted 
on the NSU farm with forage 
plots which are plots of dif- 
ferent types of feeding 


The farm is equipped with 
green houses for students that 
are interested in horticulture 
as well as the growing of 
certain vegetables. 

Mr. Wilf ord Broussard is the 
farm superintendent. 
Broussard and crew of six 
people take care of the general 
welfare of the farm. 

Dr. Jack Pace said that the

President-elect Dr. Rene J. 
Bienvenu will be the featured 
speaker for the annual 
University-Business Day noon 
luncheon which is scheduled 
for Nov. 17 in the NSU Student 
Union Ballroom. 

University-Business Day 
was created several years ago 
by Northwestern and Nat- 
chitoches Parish Chamber of 
Commerce Officials as a 
means of improving com- 
munications and understand- 
ing between the business 
community in the parish and 
the university. 

Coordinating this year's 
program are Don Lincecum, 
vicepresident of First Federal 
Savings and Loan Association, 
and Dr. Roger Best, professor 

of management and head of 
the Department of Business 
Administration and 
Economics at NSU. 

The theme of this year's 
event, "united and Positive 

for the Future," will be 
reflected throughout the 
luncheon program. Tickets for 
the luncheon are $3.50, and 
reservations may be make by 
contacting the Natchitoches 
Parish Chamber of Com- 
merce, which is hosting 
University-Business Day. 

"The purpose of the theme," 
said Lincecum, "is to show 

that the entire business 
community and the university 
community are behind Dr. 
Bienvenu and will offer our 
united support in helping him 
meet the challenges of his 
presidency. The theme also 
states that we are looking 
toward the future in a positive 
attitude, because NSU and its 
academic success have such 
an enormous effect upon the 
economy of Natchitoches.

scht, sculptor from the 
University of Dallas, gave a 
slide presentation at a faculty 
forum in the Cane River Room

Germany and attended the 
Academy of Fine Arts in 
Munich. He came to the U.S. 
in 1952 and began teaching art 
at the University of Dallas in 

Mr. Bartscht said that every 
year universities produce 
many artists that they don't 
know what to do with. He said 
that often the only thing the 
artists can do to make a living 
is to teach other people how to 
become artists. 

The German professor said 
he believed that a person 
should be an established artist 
before he begins teaching art. 
Mr. Bartscht said he thought 


this also pertained 
other professions.
